Tabla de Contenidos
Las rimas son repeticiones de secuencias de fonemas que se repiten al final de los versos. Esta técnica se usa en poesía. Lo importante es que se perciba la igualdad del timbre, por eso podems decir que es un fenómeno acústico y se da rima cuando se repiten los fonemas en por lo menos dos versos. Hay diferentes tipos de rimas, pero no profundizaremos esta vez en ellas. En general podemos decr que hay dos tipos de rimas, las vocália (asonántica) y la consonántica.

Five little peas in a pea-pod pressed.
One grew, two grew, and so did all the rest.
They grew and grew so fat and round,
the pod went pop and they fell to the ground.
Autumn winds begin to blow.
Colored leaves fall and slow.
Whirling, twirling all around.
Till at last they touch the ground.

Avila is the most “alpine” provincial capital in Spain and one of the oldest cities in the peninsula. It is located halfway between Salamanca and Madrid, an hour and a half from the Spanish capital.
The Old Town is included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. A complex of fortifications has been preserved here — in particular, semicircular towers and gates, which are considered the most fully preserved monument of medieval fortification art in Spain. Another symbol of the city is the Cathedral of Avila, surrounded by ancient mansions — the palaces of Valderrabanos, Palacio del Marques de Velada and Palacio del Pedro d’Avila.
Located northwest of Madrid, the city is considered one of the most picturesque in Spain. It was here, in the first half of the 13th century, that the world famous university was founded, where Columbus, Cortes and the Catholic Saint Loyola studied. In Salamanca, whose historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the most characteristic examples of old Spanish architecture have been preserved.
Madrid, the capital of Spain, is one of the most popular cities in Europe. It is famous for its architecture and history. Adds popularity to the city and the football team «Real». Tourists travel to Madrid all year round, because every season brings something new.

The highlight of a day trip to Segovia is a visit to the aqueduct, which was built by the Romans. It has two watercourses and 167 arches. This historic building has truly stood the test of time!
A must visit is the restored medieval castle of Alcazar, which was brought back to life after a devastating fire. All rooms of the castle are beautifully decorated, and the weapons museum is simply amazing.
If you have time left, consider a trip to the Casa de la Moneda, the former royal mint of Spain.
Just over 100 km from Madrid lies the historic walled city of Avila. It is known as the city of saints and stones. Incredibly, the city walls and towers are still standing. Ávila has 80 towers and nine different gated entrances.
Although the walls are very old, some sections are walkable. From here you have a stunning view of the city below.
Inside the city walls, there is a fortified cathedral built in the 12th century and Gothic palaces.
Salamanca is another Spanish city to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The main attraction of the city is the New Cathedral. The exquisite and imposing building stands out for its unique carvings that have been slowly added over the years. Yes, at 19The image of an astronaut was created in the 90s.
Lovers of Gothic architecture should not forget the Shell House.
Madrid is not only a city, it is the name of a whole region of Spain. The rivers Manzanares, Tahuña, Jarama, Henares and Tajo merge here. This makes the region incredibly fertile, and if you add the Spanish sun, there is no better place for vineyards!
There are dozens of wineries in the region, and the history of winemaking in this area goes back almost a century.
While traveling to the country of wine, you will not only taste the best European wines, but also learn a lot about the cultivation of grapes. Tempranillo grapes are especially popular here.

Although Cuenca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is often overlooked by travelers. But in vain …
The hanging houses of Casas-Colgadas are really impressive. The San Pablo Bridge plays a vital role in this city’s history, but it’s not for the faint of heart or for those with acrophobia.
Pedraza is a medieval town located just 37 kilometers from Segovia. It has a rich history and culture.
With cobbled streets and plenty of cafes, you can experience the Spanish pace of life and the authentic culture of this people.
A must see is the castle, which houses the masterpieces of Ignacio Zuloaga.

Just an hour from the center of Madrid is the city of Valencia. It is located on the Mediterranean coast.
You should definitely visit the Oceanographic Park to admire the amazing building that looks like a wave.
And all of a sudden… not much time left to watch something else! But what exactly? Avila, with its incredible ramparts, is 1.5-2 hours from the Spanish capital, and Salamanca, with its magnificent cathedral and Roman bridge, is even further away. You can get to the colorful «rock» Cuenca quickly, but expensively or cheaply, but for a long time. Not all of them are suitable for a short trip. As a result, the choice fell on Segovia, where you can go from Madrid for one day.
How to get from Madrid to Segovia
on La Sepulvedana buses
is the most popular option. Travel time is 1 hour on direct flights. Departure every 45 minutes from the Moncloa bus station, where the metro runs from the center of Madrid, and in Segovia the stop is located almost in the old city. It is better to buy tickets on the spot, they are sold on the Internet with a surcharge. It is more profitable to immediately take a round-trip (“Ida y Vuelta” fare), so that instead of 7.89 euros one way, pay 14.21 euros for the entire trip. Please note: tickets are sold there for a certain time, and back — with an open date, so before returning to Madrid, do not forget to go to the ticket office (right at the bus stop) and get a ticket for a specific flight. Yes, and to the total cost of the trip, add 3 euros for the metro to the bus station and back if you do not have a special travel card.
on numerous high-speed trains
— for those who do not like buses))) The journey time by rail is 30 minutes, but the departure is from the Chamartin station (on the outskirts of Madrid), where the Cercanias commuter trains run. You will also get to Segovia not in the center, but at the remote Segovia AV station, from where buses No. 11 and 12 go to the old city (1 euro and 15 minutes one way). Train tickets are quite expensive: prices start from 7.30 euros one way for ALVIA trains at the Promo fare, but it is offered only for inconvenient departures and you need to buy very early. It is easier to travel on AVANT trains, which always cost the same, and it is more profitable to take a round-trip ticket at a price of 20.60 euros instead of 12.90 euro one way. There are also AVE trains, but they are quite expensive. Plus, we add the cost of the train in Madrid — 3.40 euros round trip, if you do not have special travel cards.
is the dumbest option, but it’s worth explaining why. Travel time is 2 hours and there are only 2-5 trains per day. Departure is also from Chamartin station, but arrival in Segovia is already at another station, which is located 20 minutes walk from the old city. A train ticket costs 13.20 euros for a round trip or 8.25 euros one way, plus add another 3.40 euros for the train in Madrid.
For those who have heard of trains to Segovia departing from the Atocha station, I report that there are indeed, but there are very few of them, and the price is exorbitant.
I wrote more about all types of transport in Central Spain.
As you understand, I chose the easiest and most profitable option — the bus
. From the metro station nearest to the hotel, Sol took a direct line to the Moncloa stop. I had to turn around in search of an exit to the bus station, and then to find a ticket office or a ticket machine (it’s not easy to navigate there). By the way, I didn’t find the latter, so I stood in a decent queue at the “window”: consider this moment so as not to be late for the bus.
What to see in Segovia
After unimpressive Madrid and Toledo, I suddenly liked Segovia more than other cities. She does not pretend to be something special, but this “special” (and even very!) is just the same in her. An incredible creation of ancient engineering is a well-preserved long Roman aqueduct. Add to this one of the most picturesque castles in Spain and several beautiful churches and we get a candy town, by the way, not only in a figurative sense! What are the ingredients of this sweet?
and another aqueduct! If you are interested in Ancient Rome, explore its ingenious invention inside and out. Start from the highest vantage point of the aqueduct at Piazza Avendano, around the corner from the famous Mirador Aqueduct lookout. Don’t forget to pay your respects to the bronze Roman she-wolf that stands nearby in Oriental Square. Then walk along the streets of Almira and Los Canuelos, where the arches of the ancient aqueduct become so low that you can prop them up with your hands. Learn how the water treatment plant or «Water Tower» (Torre de agua) worked, where the water entering the city got rid of sand and other impurities. And, finally, satisfy your curiosity by looking into the very «mouth» of the aqueduct!
Ancient Roman aqueduct in Segovia
— the residence of the Spanish monarchs, more like a fairy-tale palace. It is even believed that he became the prototype of the famous Disney castle (although he is not the only one!). There are three types of tickets to visit: palace + tower (8 euros), only the palace (5.50 euros) and only the tower (2. 50 euros). I advise you to take a full ticket, because the interiors of the Alcazar are worthy of attention, and breathtaking views open from the observation deck. Those who wish can also take an audio guide in Russian for 3 euros (+ 5 euros to leave as a deposit).
Main façade of the Alcazar of Segovia
View from the Alcazar lookout: the Cathedral and the peaks of the Sierra de Guadarrama
— not as gigantic as in Toledo, but also not as expensive (although still cold inside). It can be visited separately (3 euros), together with the bell tower (7 euros), or you can only go up to the observation deck (5 euros). But keep in mind that visiting the bell tower of the cathedral is possible only with a 1.5-hour tour in Spanish, which is held 3-4 times a day. There is also a free time to visit the cathedral — on Sundays from 9:00 to 11:00.
Walk along the city wall
(La Muralla) is available for free in the Casa del Sol Historical Museum area, but it is much more interesting to do it in the Jewish quarter, going up through the ancient gate Puetra de San Andres. You can get there only by the code that is given at the nearest information center La Muralla (free of charge on weekdays).
— in my opinion, the most beautiful in the city (although not the main one), but many people pass it on one side and do not see all the splendor. Be sure to stay there for a few minutes, climb the stairs to the fountain, and at the same time walk around the pretty church of San Martin.
Church of San Martin in Medina del Campo in Segovia
Churches of Segovia
are old and beautiful, but almost always closed: San Martin, San Millan, San Justo y Pastor, San Esteban and others. Therefore, I advise you to immediately tune in only to external admiration, and then, as it turns out, you will suddenly be able to look inside!
, where the University of Segovia is located today, a beautiful Gothic building that can also be seen from the inside. If you’re lucky, you’ll end up in a former church, where scientific conferences are now held and diplomas are issued.
— located at some distance from the old city, but attracts with its exclusivity and closeness (and also free of charge))) Only 8 monks live in the ancient building, and you can visit them only twice a day (at 11:00 and 17:00, but it is better to check in the tourist info). A beautiful Gothic church, a patio and a picturesque platform overlooking the Alcazar are open for inspection. By the way, next to the monastery there is also a curious Mint and Aqueduct Museum, where on Wednesdays they are allowed free of charge.
I won’t be original if I again advise to stay late in the city if possible
, to see its main beauties with night illumination: the ornate Cathedral, the magical Alcazar (including from the observation decks) and the Roman giant aqueduct.
lookouts around Segovia
are incredibly picturesque, so I will write about them in detail (for lovers of long walks).
Mirador de la Pradera de San Marcos
— the closest point to the city center with a view of the Alcazar. To the right of the entrance to the square in front of the castle, turn down the path through the park, and after descending, cross the bridge and walk along San Marcos Street to the church of the same name. Turning left in front of it, you will find yourself on a green lawn right at the foot of the castle hill. Look for even more interesting views of the Alcazar in the park located here, where you can even climb onto the platform-ruin of the ancient Puente del Piojo bridge.
In this area, you should also look into the monastery of San Juan de la Cruz (aka Convento de Carmelitas Descalzas) and the sanctuary of Nuestra Senora de la Fuencisla (both free), and also see the old Templar church La Vera Cruz (it is empty inside, but original, entrance — 3 euros).
View of the Alcazar from Mirador de la Pradera de San Marcos
The ancient church of La Vera Cruz (view from the Alcazar lookout)
Mirador del Alcazar y los dos Valles
— located further, but the view of the Alcazar from there is the best. Walk along the same San Marcos street, which will then turn into Arevalo-Erillas, to the elegant La Fuencisla arch. To the left of it leaves the path, and then the stairs up the hill — you go there.
Panoramic road Cuesta de los Hoyos
— an alternative walking option without slides. It departs to the left from San Marcos and stretches almost along the entire city, now and then opening up beautiful views of its beauty.
Mirador del Ultimo Pino
— another viewpoint on the Alcazar is already on the side. You can walk to it from Mirador del Alcazar y los dos Valles, going further along the ridge of the hill, or you can quickly climb a steep slope from Cuesta de los Hoyos street (look for an area with benches on the right side of the road and choose the right staircase, which is hidden behind trees).
— just the second staircase leads there, which is visible directly from the road. In fact, this is not even a lookout, but just a pine grove, walking along which you can capture the panorama of almost the entire old city with one glance.
or the old Jewish cemetery — the Cathedral is perfectly visible from here, and you can climb to the observation deck by several stairs that depart from the same Cuesta de los Hoyos street (look for the “Cementerio Judio” sign to the right of the road). And if you don’t feel like climbing anywhere, then you can admire a more modest panorama of the cathedral from below.
A couple of clarifications: you will have to return to the old city on foot, because buses do not go past the lookouts; keep in mind that the road back to the center will go uphill, so allow more time for this. You can read more about the described route at the link, but only in Spanish.
I confess that I did not manage to see everything from this list in one day, but I planned to. But if someone goes to Segovia with an overnight stay, he will already have a complete must visit ready!

This miniature village of the 13th-16th centuries, which is included in the list of the most beautiful places in Spain, is called the «time capsule» by the Spaniards themselves. Pedraza never grew beyond the fortress walls, and you can get into the village and get out of it through the only fortress gates. Pedraza’s entourage is added by the ongoing filming of local historical series and colorful themed weddings.
On the first and second Saturdays of July, in the evenings, the streets of the village are lit exclusively with wax candles. The Candle Concerts (Conciertos de las Velas) begin with the symphony concerts that take place on these nights at the foot of the castle. It is better to book tickets in advance.
Candle Concert in Pedras
The most beautiful Alcala de Henares, half an hour from the center of Madrid, is a place of pilgrimage for all admirers of the genius of Cervantes. In 2015, the Spaniards celebrated the 400th anniversary of the publication of the second part of Don Quixote, and in 2016 they celebrate the 400th anniversary of the death of Cervantes.
In honor of the writer, the Cervantes Train was launched from Madrid, with Don Quixote and Sancho walking around its carriages. Upon arrival in Alcala, all passengers are invited to tour the house where Miguel de Cervantes was born, the monastery where he was baptized, and the colorful 17th-century theater Corral de Comedias.
Do not pass by the University of Alcala: you are allowed to enter the chapel, the outer courtyards, and even the auditorium. Everything has remained almost unchanged since 1499, when the university was founded. The most inquisitive can buy here a fascinating tour with a guide.
The Cervantes train leaves Atocha Station at 11:05 and returns to Madrid at 18:50 every Saturday from 2 April to 11 June and from 1 October to 3 December. Ticket price — €22, travel time — 30 min.
Theatrical performance on the Cervantes Train
In one day in Toledo you can see all the works of El Greco, explore the Jewish quarter, take panoramic pictures from the bell tower of St. Mary’s Cathedral and taste the best cheeses and marzipans in Spain. The latter are best prepared by local nuns.
In 2016, Toledo takes over as the gastronomic capital of Spain, so something new is prepared here every month. In July, there is a gazpacho championship, a week of craft beer and escabeche (freshly marinated fish) tasting. Download the gastronomic map and immediately mark the numbers 17 and 62 on it. The first is the best terrace in the city, where you can spend the whole evening and midnight getting acquainted with the wines of the La Mancha lands, and the second is the La Flor tavern, which made a name for itself for tapas according to ancient Toledo recipes .
You can get to Toledo by train from Atocha Station or by bus from Plaza Eliptica Station.
Attention: Toledo is one of the hottest cities in Spain, the summer is a real sunshine, so try to spend the afternoon hours in museums and cathedrals, where it is always cool, and respect the tradition of siesta.
The village of El Escorial is a 16th century monastery of Sal Lorenzo built at the whim of King Philip II. It used to serve as the autumn residence of the royal court. Almost all Spanish monarchs rest in a rich tomb. In total, Escorial has 13 chapels, 16 courtyards, a unique collection of paintings by Titian, El Greco, Rogier van der Vader and Bosch, and the incredible beauty of the royal library. The collection of books and manuscripts is second only to that of the Vatican. Rare editions are stored with the spines inside, so as not to damage the luxurious bindings.
Leaving El Escorial, you can climb the hill opposite and admire the monastery from the stone throne of Philip II, as the king himself did.
You can get there by buses no. 661 or no. 664 from Moncloa metro station.
People talk about Aranjuez not only as the spring residence of kings, but also as the most famous vegetable garden in Spain. Therefore, it is best to go here on the vintage Strawberry Train (Tren de la Fresa), where the conductors carry fragrant berries from Aranjuez.
is a great base for sightseeing nearby. You can get to all the places described below by train or bus, one day is enough to see them. So, where to go from Madrid for one day?
El Escorial Monastery is located an hour’s drive from Madrid at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama. The huge Escorial complex includes a royal palace, a pantheon, a monastery, houses of famous personalities, a basilica and one of the best libraries of that time and the Renaissance in general. Here you can see works by Tintoretto, El Greco, Titian, Velasquez and Rogier van der Weyden. On the south side of the palace there is a luxurious garden, arranged according to French models.
The scale of the Escorial is amazing, Spain has not known such large-scale construction before it.
How to get there: from Madrid to Escorial can be reached by train or bus. The train schedule can be found on the website. Buses 661 and 664 run to Escorial from Moncloa Station.
Not far from Escorial is the monumental complex Valley of the Fallen. This is a grandiose fruit of the imagination of the Spanish ruler F. Franco, built in memory of the Civil War on 1936-1939 years. The complex consists of a 150-meter monument in the form of a cross, a huge basilica carved into the rock, and a Benedictine monastery on an area of 1365 hectares.

Avila is the highest capital of the Spanish provinces (1131 m above sea level). Exhausting summer heat is rare here, and winter is quite cold. The historical part of the city is surrounded by a powerful fortress wall of the XI century, 2.5 km long.
In the 19th century, the Ávila authorities intended to demolish the wall, fortunately they could not find the money to do so. But now the wall has become a landmark that attracts crowds of curious tourists to the city. But not only the wall glorified the city.
Avila is known throughout the Christian world as the birthplace and ministry of Saint Teresa. The house where Saint Teresa was born; the cell in which she spent most of her life; the first monastery founded by her; and even the finger of the Holy — all this is in Avila. Not surprisingly, since the sixteenth century. the city became an unofficial place of pilgrimage for believers.
Steak lovers will find an outlet in Ávila with chuletón de Ávila: a steak made from a local black cow breed. And for dessert, “yemas de Santa Teresa” (yemas de Santa Teresa) or simply yemas, which means the yolks of St. Teresa (yes, the same one).
There are 2 ways to get to Avila from Madrid: by train from the Madrid-Chamartin station, by bus from the Estación del Sur bus station, on Mendez Alvoro.
Cuenca is clearly divided into two zones: the old and the new city. The old city is located on a stone cliff surrounded by gorges formed by the beds of two rivers.
