Roman Aqueduct, Segovia, Spain

The Roman Aqueduct in Segovia, Spain, has to be one of the most famous ones in the world. Every time I’ve seen it, I’ve been impressed. These photos aren’t the best, but they give a good impression of  the how the structure spans the little valley there leading to the old part of town.
