Note: Segovia was an Iberian settlement since ca. 700 BCE, falling to Roman control ca. 80 BCE. Segovia underwent Moorish occupation from early 8th century until its recapture by Alfonso VI in 1079. During the late 16th century the plague led to the city's decline, but revived during the age of railroad construction in the 19th century. An important historical site is the Roman-built Segovia aqueduct, well known as "El Puente." Other distinguished buildings include the Church of San Esteban, San Martín, La Trinidad, San Lorenzo, San Millán and the Alcázar, a palace for the royal family of Castile.
