The municipality of Segovia counts some 55,500 inhabitants. The Aqueduct of Segovia is one
of the most significant and best-preserved monuments left by Romans on the Iberian Peninsula.

The aqueduct transports waters from Fuente Fria river, situated in the nearby mountains some 17 kms
from the city in a region known as La Acebeda. It runs another 15 kms before arriving in the city.
The water is first gathered in a tank known as 'Big House', and is
then led through a channel to a second tower known as the 'Waterhouse'. There it is naturally
decanted and sand settles out before the water continues its route. Next the water travels
728 meters on a one-percent grade until it is high upon the Postigo, a rocky outcropping on
which the old city center. At its tallest, the aqueduct reaches a height of 28.5 meters, including
nearly 6 meters of foundation. There are both single and double arches supported by pillars.
On the course of the aqueduct, it boasts 79 single and 44 double arches, in total of 167 arches.
