In all honesty, the Alcazar as a castle is not one of the grandest or the most impressive around. Still, it does have a couple of good galleries with interesting historical displays. What's worth the walk right from the entrance to the Old Town (where the Aqueduct is) is really that unrivalled view of Segovia, with the Cathedral lording over... More

I loved seeing the Alcazar and it is in great shape inside and out for the age. I was looking forward to photographing it at night, but unfortunately when I was there, they didn't light it up at night during the weekdays. It's worth it to climb all the way to the top! Great views.

My six year old daughter love all the Dysney princesses and dreamed to visit the castle. We don't have any castles in our country. For this, visiting this castle is a wonderful experience to us.

This castle/fortress has seen history from the 13th century including the beginings of the reign of Isabel and Ferdinand. With amazing stained glass and a great view of the cathedral and surrounding country side

The view from the Tower is impressive!! You can see all of Segovia as well as the wonderful countryside surrounding it from this vantage point. The Castle itself is quite nice and well-maintained ... really it was quite a site when visiting in 2006.

Simply amazing! The view of this castle is impressive and it seems to be really well-preserved. Walking around was really enjoyable and the view from the castle's tower is worth a photo! :)

One of the best preserved castles i have visited. Very imposing and impressive. View from the tower is absolutely magical. Do the tower climb for the view.

Iconic, you'll recognize it when you see it. A couple of hours wandering around, reading the history, seeing all the armory items was a pleasure.

We ended a walking tour of Segovia with a local guide touring the Alcazar. It was an amazing castle filled with history and treasures. I'd recommend getting a local guide as opposed to an audio tour if you have limited time and want to experience an interactive tour--the guides also can point out the best photo spots.
