- In today's show, guess where we are? Segovia, driving around in Spain is an amazing experience. I feel like stopping the car in each village. Today we chose to visit the old Segovia. A city that gives some of the most famous work of art of Roman architecture. 460 millimeters of rain fall each year. I think all the rain fell down when we arrive. Actually the rain gave our visit to the Alcazar Palace very romantic mood. This place used to be the favorite home to several kings. It was from here that Isabella de Castilla walked to Plaza Major to become queen. It also inspired Walt Disney to create the Snow White castle. It is the palace where any princess would like to live. If you want to truly visit Segovia, walking around is a must, and feeling the story of the streets in every step of the way. The Plaza Major holds the old cathedral. Known as Lady of the Cathedrals, it's the last guarded one build in Spain. Could you please wait for me? So much history made me feel hungry. Ready, now, let's go on, a legend tells a girl had to climb up and down the mountain everyday for water. One day, tired of this she said she would give anything if water came to her instead. That night the devil turned up, and he agreed to build an aqueduct just before sunrise if she giving her soul in return. Just as he was about to lay the last stone. The sun started to rise, so the village got an aqueduct and the girl kept her soul. Today it is a unique symbol of the city. This visible section is 818 meters long. But the whole aqueduct is 15 kilometers. This is the major fit of Roman civil engineering in Spain. Can you guess where we are going to cook today? Here. At the Meson de Candido we are going to cook a special dish that crosses generations. The cochinillo segoviano, roasted by Candido's son. And now, Candido himself will show us the only way to cut off this delicacy.
