The first days of autumn bring a different kind of sun to Segovia. If you stand at the foot of the aqueduct, just as the evening light fades you will see that the sun turns its ancient stones orange, just for a few minutes, in a routine farewell. With this embrace, the stone giant lights up and appears to be in flames before our eyes, but only for a moment. Then the cool of night descends, and the titan is gray once more. Yes, autumn is here.
