Well worth seeing. We scheduled an English speaking tour that was only an additional four Euros per person for our 8 person group over the admission price and well worth it. Obviously, this is the highlight of Segovia beyond the Aqueduct. Because of the fire, they are a little short on original furniture and trappings, but the restoration is very... More

Alcazar de Segovia is a beautiful palace in a beautiful natural environtment. If you go to Segovia it is a must. If you have time and can go in, much better; if not you can join the beautiful views near the palace and from distance. Its towers are like the ones of a Fairy Tale.

Segovia alcazar is something unexpected from many points of view : 1- if you've already visited the alcazars from southern Spain like the andalusian ones of Granada and Sevilla--- well forget them! It's more like visiting a Bavarian or Tirolean castle but in the middle of Spanish landscape 2- it's not medieval , but from XIX century 3- the inside... More

The Alcazar is beautiful! The walk from the aquaduct via the Cathedral is both scenic and easy enough, and from here you can comfortably knock over the aquaduct and the Cathedral in half a day as well, as they are all a short walk from each other. Well worth the drive into beautiful Segovia!

I loved this castle. After coming from a few days touring Madrid, this felt so much more real and medieval. The exhibitions throughout Alcazar are interesting and offer a good feel of what life would have looked liked. Would recommend a walk up the tower. Have some general fitness as you have to walk up the many steep stairs to... More

A beautiful castle with a blending of cultures , styles and visions. Baroque, Gothic, Muslim, Christian everything depending on the time period and the occupier. A staircase trek to the top is worth the tired knees --Most def a must see attraction.

this was the inspiration to the snow white castle, and it really looks like straight out of a fairy tale..... the castle seems enchanted, lots of nooks and crannies, beautiful gardens, hidden stairways, even kids would love to explore this gem. if you have a rental car, make sure you drive around the base of the castle, as each angle...

When in Segovia, do not miss seeing the Alcazar. It will take a bit over an hour to see it and if you are willing and able, pay the extra price of climbing the stairs to the top of the tower for the beautiful view. I didn't rent the audio tour equipment because I went with friends who live near... More
