Monday Mystery Photo – Last week Segovia

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment*,  if you think you know the location of this week’s photograph, (posted above). If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog, when the answer is revealed the following week.  Guest contributions to MMP are very welcome.

Where is the following photograph located?

*N.B. If your comment/guess isn’t showing immediately, it is because comments are released on the following Thursday or Friday of the week the Monday Mystery photo, is posted. That way, everyone gets a chance to guess, without peeking at any of the previous guesses.

Last Week’s photograph

“Built during the second half of the 1st century A.D. under the rule of the Roman Empire, [the aqueduct in Segovia, Spain], supplied water from the Frío River to the city into the 20th century. The remaining portion of the structure stands 28.5 meters tall at its maximum height and nearly 6 additional meters deep in the main section. Along 14 kilometers of rolling landscape, the aqueduct adjusts to the contours of the valley, hills, and city. The pillars and arches of its tall, two-story arcades are made of solid blocks of stone fit closely together with little or no mortar.” [Source: www.wmf.org/project/aqueduct-segovia] Given World Heritage list status in 1985, the Aqueduct of Segovia, lies one hour from Madrid, and remains one of the most intact Roman aqueducts in Europe.

And the winners who guessed correctly are:

Drake – Ledrakenoir

Tara  – After the Rain

Ted from Recipereminiscing

Peggy – Where to Next?

and an Honourable mention to Snow melts Somewhere

About Forestwoodfolkart

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    The temptation is to say Venice, but it’s probably somewhere else.
