Not the most elaborate of all Cathedrals but certainly loaded with history. Take your time and admire the almost alike organs and learn who built them. If there is an event you may have to wait a bit to get in. Enjoy

If you are in Segovia don't miss Jose Maria. This iconic restaurant comes with a rich history of serving the finest clients for ages. The food is great. The service is superior. An unforgettable experience.

These guys know how to cook! My wife decided to have the suckling pig as it was the local speciality. She loved it. I, being a fish and veg. eater only went for the Dorada despite being about as far from the sea as you can get in Spain. The best I've ever had. Cooked to perfection and properly filleted,... More

We were recommended by a friend and it is the best suckling pig we ever had. The crunchy and golden skin does melt on your mouth, of course there is not too much meat. It was valuable experience and well worth wait until 16:00 to have lunch (A tip: go there first there to make the reservation and then tour... More

We stopped for lunch after a visit to the Cathedral, this place is packed at all times of the day but we were able to get a nice quiet table downstairs. We tried the tasting menu, a remarkable value at 50€ a person but this is really not a tasting meal but a full 6 course meal, way too much... More

Honestly, the best suckling pig I've ever tried in my life. Crispy on the outside and buttery on the inside. Attention was very good as well and price is fair

Cochinillo Asado or Segovia’s Roast Suckling Pig is the reason why one goes to Segovia, but not the only reason. I always wanted to see the ritual where the roast piglet enters the dining room sizzling on a tray before the anticipating and hungry eyes waiting for the Master Chef to take it a part with precision using nothing but...

I think l never saw such a crowded restaurant and such a quick and good services. It was my husband's birthday and they waited for us with champagne from the house and at the end with birthday cake. Everything was perfect. And the prices was not so high.
