The centre of Segovia’s nightlife is Calle de la Infanta Isabel, known by the locals as “Calle de los Bares” (bar street). It’s particularly busy between Thursday and Saturday night and it’s a perfect place if you want to try some of the local tapas, have a few glasses of wine or beer and soak up the night-time atmosphere of students filling the streets.

Another nightlife area, where you can find some bars and discos, is around Calle de los Escuderos and Calle de Carmen (near the Aqueduct). The night doesn’t start here earlier than 10 p.m. but head there only at the weekend, otherwise it’s dead.

Things to try and buy

Segovian cuisine is a hearty, heavy affair. It is most famous for its cochinillo asado (roast suckling pig) but other local specialities include lechazo asado (roast lamb) and judiones con verduras (beans with vegetables). Locally cured queso de oveja (sheep’s cheese) and jamón serrano (serrano ham) are also highly recommended. To drink, the red wine Ribera del Duero is the tipple of choice.

For those looking for a unique souvenir idea, a collectable coin from the world’s oldest functioning mint, which resides in Segovia, might be a little different.
