An enjoyable and beautiful medieval castle in Segovia. While you travel around and inside the castle, you feel the historic atmosphere. Buy a combined ticket (8 Euro instead of 5.5 euro) for the access to the top of the tower (152 stairs) to get the...More

The Segovia Alcazar is a fine piece of architecture, renovated after a great fire and now a collection of mobilia and ancient weapons. Great views fo the city and the surrounding hills.

I don't have to tell you about the history of this place. This was an enjoyable experience from the very beginning. Personal favorite was Joan the Mad in The Hall of Kings. Look over the edge (if you're brave enough).

This castle is great, but the armor collection is outstanding! If you are a fan of medieval armor you need to see it. I have never seen such detail and the armored horses are wonderful. The Tower is worth the difficult stairs. The view of...More

The Alcázar is a wonder of Islamic style beauty, combined with the riches of Spanish royal history. You won't be alone there, but it is possible to dream and marvel at the workmanship, not to speak of the history to be found in paintings, statues...More

Another impressive alcazar in Spain. This medieval castle in Segovia reminds you more of the fairy tale castles depicted in Disney movies. It was great to traverse the rooms and linger without the usual crowds in December. I especially enjoyed the armory collection similar to...More
