Segovia (Spain VII)

Another town with narrow streets but Segovia is much nicer than Toledo. Just more friendly and a bit smaller. We are on our way to the Alcazar, one of the town's treasures (the other being the aqueduct, a construction dating from more than 2000 years. Can any of of our modern constructions last that long??) when we encounters people dressed in period costumes. Most are on horses and dressed as Napoleon's soldiers. Some are wearing the traditional Turkish tarbush. We ask. They are shooting a movie directed by Milos Forman. The subject would be something related to the Goya's painting called "Los Fusilamientos del 3 de Mayo". Probably a movie exposing the massacres perpetrated by the French soldiers at that time. I make a mental note to keep an eye for the movie's release.
