Segovia’s Medieval Villages

Spain Bike Tours

A quiet cycle tour through the heart of Spain…

  • This stunning bike tour in Spain starts in the medieval city of Segovia. Renown for its remarkable Aqueduct, this symbol of the city is an impressive feat of civil engineering and continues to be one of the most beautiful urban sites in the world. Your overnights and circular routes along the way will showcase Spain at its best, rich in history, culture, wines, gastronomy, and lovely nature and landscapes. You will be transported back in time gazing upon the Pedraza Castle, dating back to the 13th century! A highlight for sure will be Duratón Canyon Nature Reserve. The powerful forces of the River Duratón have excavated deep gorges in these limestone lands, and a great number of large birds call this place home.

    Highlights:

    • Segovia, unesco world heritage site
    • Santa María de la Sierra Monastery Ruins
    • Medieval towns of Pedraza and Sepulveda
    • Cycling rural road through tranquil landscapes
    • Two nights in each hotel
