'I don't know anyone who has approached this place and not been conquered by this amazing view'. Robert Guyon.

The praises of this Belgian hIspanist are inscribed on the wall of the small chapel that stands at the exit of Zamaramala.

They are inscribed on the wall of the small hermitage that stands at the exit of Zamaramala. From there, the monumental line, which includes the Alcázar, the city walls, the tower of San Esteban and the Cathedral, in short, the whole city can be seen.

El Terminillo

Stretching along the side of the road down from La Lastrilla and the Parador, this is where you can see the whole of the north side of Segovia and the big Segovia, with the Alcázar as the bow, the Cathedral's tower as the main mast, and the Aqueduct as the mooring link to the mainland, floating above the green sea where the towers of San Salvador and San Justo stand out. It is an ideal place to admire the image of the stone boat.

La Piedad

La Piedad is a hill next to the road to Avila, shaded by the cross that concludes the stone calvary and next to a small medieval marabout, from which you can see most of the town.

La Canaleja

Where the rows of houses on Real Street break off, just before where the gate of San Martín once stood and where the Casa de los Picos stands, there is a long parapet. This is built in the 19th century to eliminate a closed passageway.

La Canaleja led to the neighbourhood of San Millán. As a result, this magnificent balcony overlooks a large part of the neighbourhood, including the church of San Millán, the church of San Clemente and the land carved out of the rock. In the background, there are blue distant views of the Sierra mountains, including the jagged peaks of Siete Picos, from which, according to the Segovians, the devil carried the stones for the Aqueduct, the cone of Monton de Trigo and the unmistakable profile of the Mujer Muerta (dead woman) that inspired the legend.

Fromkes Garden

The name of this garden is a tribute to the American painter Mauricio Fromkes, who had a residence and studio in the immediate vicinity of this site. The balustrade separating it from the Cuesta del Doctral recreates the view of the city walls, the Eresma Valley, the Mint, El Parral Monastery and the steep cliffs rising up to the rocks.
