    If I lived there I'd never get any work done. – user79534 Jun 29 '18 at 17:44

    @puppetsock: It really is a beautiful city, even without the photoshop saturation slider at 11. As a bonus, there's a huge aqueduct on the other side of town. It's built with unmortared, brick-like granite blocks and has been standing for more than 2 millenias. – Eric Duminil Jun 29 '18 at 21:23

I've never seen this place myself, nor heard about it before today, but after some research online, I'm fairly certain this is Segovia in Spain.

The big church in the middle is the Segovia cathedral . The small church in the foreground of your picture is the Iglesia de la Vera Cruz.

The town is a UNESCO world heritage site.

The mountains at the back are the Sierra de Guadarrama.

    Just curious, how did you find out it's Segovia? – Eric Duminil Jun 29 '18 at 21:24

    Searched for 'cathedral mountains'. I'm amazed myself that actually worked. – drat Jun 30 '18 at 1:16

It's a view of the façade of the Segovia Cathedral, the ancient City Walls (8th century), and the Guadarrama mountains.
