The chief draw-card that brought me to Segovia was the Aqueduct. That was indeed excellent, but after looking at that I decided to head on out to the Alcazar as well. Following a very pleasant walk through the lovely town of Segovia I came upon the Alcazar. Just wow! From the moment I saw it my heart rate shot up... More

We visited the Alcazar including the tower in about an hour. It isn't the most spectacular...the one in Sevilla was nicer in my opinion, but the one in Segovia is worth a visit. There are no informational signs in the Alcazar so if you want to know anythig about it, consider paying extra for an audio guide. It's a nice... More

It is very well preserved and very beautiful. I thought the view was the best Alcazar view I've seen. If you are in Segovia, do not skip this visit!

Great place to visit. Our two top tips are be early - less people, second go up to the top first whilst it is quiet - one very tight helical stair way for both up and down.

If you are in Segovia, this place is a must visit. The facade is magnificent, it's looks like something straight out of "Dungeons and Dragon" book. It's amazingly well preserved. Pay a little extra and you can walk up the tower but please take note that this entails climbing narrow spiral stairs and is not recommended for people with physical... More

We visited Segovia on a guided tour. I would love to return and have more time to just wander and appreciate this place. The Alcazar is straight out of a fairy tale. Moorish influence in it's design and decor is quite beautiful. For me a visit to place like this is more than just an old castle but also a... More

We didn't know what to expect. We discovered a very beautiful palace with an interesting history. The ceilings are wonderful, and the tower is worth a visit for the view.

This is a nice castle to tour, but nothing amazing to the standard person. I guess the longer someone travels through Europe the easier it is to get burnt out from castles and cathedrals. The armament display, covering the weapons used throughout history in the area was the highlight for me. The view around the castle is pretty amazing also.... More

This alcazar is well preserved and is very imposing. There are some great views over the countryside form some of the rooms. This was one of the castles that were used to make the Disney logo castle, and definitely is worthy of a princess. The best views of the castle itself are to be found near the inglesia de vera...

Amazing place that has been on my wish list for a long while now and was worth every second, decided to go in winter and travelled up by train from madrid which in itself was a delightful journey through the snowey mountains. I wish british trains were so cheap! About 15euro return. Just keep an eye on the train times... More
