Description:

Fortress of the Kings of Castile and Royal School of Artillery Its picture...

Fortress of the Kings of Castile and Royal School of Artillery Its picture has been around the world: a unique fairy tale-like palace that brings together architectural tastes of different monarchs. It tells -to all those who come to know it- ancient palatial stories. Austere, as they were the Castilian kings, raised on the rock at the confluence of the valleys of the rivers Eresma and Clamores, the Alcázar seems to watch over the city. Its beautiful Tower keep, often compared to the bow of a boat sailing between the two rivers, is of a stunning beauty. Tourists are amazed to realize that the fortress is a living part of this Castilian city, chosen as a place of residence for many of the monarchs of the Trastámara dynasty.

There is a lot of reconstruction going on in this wonderful example of castles of yore. The city clearly knows the importance of this site as a draw for tourists. After stepping around a few construction areas we were able to make our way into the main castle. There are multiple rooms, many with a theme such as throne room,... More

The texture of the Castle is completely out of some story book. You can keep looking at it for hours and still won't satisfy your eyes. How they have preserved and restored it to its past glory is beyond me, its a once in a lifetime experience to get on top of the castle and see the meadows around. Completely... More

You must visit this castle if you go to Segovia! Actually it is one of the reasons for going to Segovia. It is a wonderful castle. When I saw it, it left me speechless. It is so romantic and it is like it came out of a fairytale. It reminded me a bit of Neuschwanstein castle in Germany (I know... More

An extremely well preserved castle with all the raiments of the Christian knights, their history, purpose and armoury.Spectacular vistas of the surrounding countryside and the snow topped Sierra Guadarrama mountains from the battlements.

We arrived by train. Take a taxi up to the Alcazar and start there. Then work your way down through the city, the cathedral and end at the aquaduct. This way you are going mostly down hill and you finish at the visitors centre with the bus stops and taxis.

While I was there visiting in 2016 June, the alcazar was under renovation. Such a pity if not the photos with this would have looked so much prettier. This was not the highlight of Segovia, as I felt that the Aqueduct is more amazing. Overall, this is still worth a visit because it feels like you traveled back in time... More

Beautiful castle and amazing views from the tower. The place is extremely cold and windy during the winter, so do not think you visit indoor museum when going to Alcazar - wear the warmest winter clothes you have and enjoy the views!
