Last Saturday, Miró’s bird has been to Segovia, a Spanish town with a large history.
First, he visited the Aqueduct built by the Romans about the 1st century AD. This amazing monument was used to bring water to the town and, as you can see in photos, it looks as if it was new!
After a long walk along the Aqueduct, it was time to have lunch in one of the most famous and ancient restaurants in Spain: Candido. It is located next to the Aqueduct and there you can try the “cochinillo”, a typical dish of the region.
Before serving the food a ceremony takes place, the restaurant's owner reads aloud in old Spanish language a document about Segovia and his restaurant history. Then, he chops the roast pig with a simple plate and throws it to the floor, breaking it into pieces.
Finally, walking through the old town, Miro’s bird came to the Alcazar, a castle-palace built over the ruins of an ancient Celtic village. In the last picture you can see the Alcazar main tower.
What a nice day!
