Segovia is a medieval village, located 82 Km. far away from Madrid, in the Castilla and Leon community.
The old town comes from the XI century. It is located at the left side of the Eresma river, involving the administrative and representative functions of the city, in the surroundings of the "Plaza Mayor" (Main Square). Outside the walls, the historical city (XIV-XVI century), grew towards the East: it is the commercial and bussiness town. Most of the modern urban growing was verified after the Spanish Civil War.
