Cathedral of Segovia, Spain

This is Spain’s Segovia Cathedral. ¬†(I also have a night-time picture of this same cathedral posted in the European Photography Gallery).

The fun part about the town of Segovia, aside from it’s centuries old — and still functioning aqueduct — is it was here Christopher Columbus convinced the King of Spain to fund his trip West to find an easier trade route. ¬†Instead of finding India, Columbus and his ships stumbled upon the New World.
