Dating in Segovia is easy! Segovia is renowned for its cobalt mountains, lush fields, colorful sunsets and golden light, making it an ideal place to ignite a romantic spark. Enjoy a dreamy picnic with some of the most breathtaking views in the entire province. 

Some of Segovia’s best picnic spots and tips: 

  • The Eresma River: Located right by The Factory residence hall, the shady trees bordering the river make it the perfect spot for a quiet, private picnic.
  • Frozen Lake: Stroll along the lake during golden hour to watch the breathtaking sunset. Soak up the romantic scene as the vibrant colors melt away to a sultry twilight.
  • Mirador de la Pradera: A short walk from the Alcázar, this meadow offers spectacular views of the fortress and allows you to appreciate the ship-like stature of the Alcázar from the ground up. 

Of course, the weather can be deceiving. Don’t forget to bring a coat and a warm blanket—add in a nice bottle of red wine to help make the chilly evening feel cozy. Some cheese, crackers and a speaker to set the mood wouldn’t hurt either.
