Plaza del Azoguejo, 1, 40001 Segovia, Spain
The ancient city of Segovia is charming in every sense of the word. Wooden and stone houses line impossibly narrow winding streets, up the hills to the heart of the Roman Aqueduct. On your quest to see the Alcázar of Segovia and its spatial...

Plaza Reina Victoria Eugenia, s/n, 40003 Segovia, Spain
An hour outside of Madrid sits el Alcazar de Segovia, the castle that is rumored to have inspired Cinderella's Castle in Walt Disney World. Coming upon it at sunrise, this majestic hilltop fortress does not fail to impress. Many visitors head to...

Seville, Spain
I read about the Sevilla Walking Tours group in a Rick Steves travel book, and I am so glad we checked them out! The three knowledgeable tour guides are so friendly, and they gave us an intimate tour of their hometown. The group offers three tours...

Calle Mateos Gago, 1, 41004 Sevilla, Spain
$$$$
Does La Giralda, the bell tower of the cathedral, look familiar? The Almohad design of the tower, a minaret repurposed when the Christians took Seville back from the Moors, inspired the designs of Chicago’s Wrigley Building, the Biltmore Hotel in...

Valencia, Spain
Every March, Valencia Spain is filled with colorful papier mache statues, like this one of Michael Jackson in his Neverland Ranch. The intricate structures are supposed to represent trends and phenomena Valencia wishes to rid from its culture. On...

Plaça Major, 30, 08500 Vic, Barcelona, Spain
Sit down to a drink or a light meal in or around Vic's Plaça Mayor. For a light snack, split an order of torrades (toasted rustic bread piled with local specialties) with a friend. One of my personal favorites is a torrada smeared with tomato and...
