Alcázar is a beautiful castle with outstanding view from all sides. Well kept gardens. There is a climb to the to top of the towers, narrow, claustrophobic and tiring for those not physically fit with rewarding views of Segovia and the surroundings. Priced right with self guided tour and map. Time needed about 60 minutes, or more if you love... More

It was really reasonably priced (I think 7 euros for a self-guided tour and to climb the tour). The inside has some really impressive architecture and designs as well as knights' armor. Definitely pay extra to go up the tour, the stairs are a little tricky if you're claustrophobic because they're so narrow, but the views from the top are... More

We can have a good view of Segovia when we walked up to the castle. We can see exhibits of amours, knights, Apparently, the castle was one of the inspirations for Walt Disney's Cinderella Castle. worth the time to visit the castle.

Not to be missed the palace itself is interesting to visit it allows you to place the different early kings of Spain in chronological order . The views from the dungeon of the city are spectacular. There is a cafe prior to the entrance on the left side from where you can enjoy peace away from the madding crowds

A pleasant 10 minute uphill stroll from the aqueduct. Our tour guide gave insights to the life of a knight. There were several pieces of interesting armor. Situated on the highest point the fort has great views of of country side and the chapel built by Knights Templar.

Great views of Segovia from around the fort, pretty gardens in the courtyards. We did not go in, but spent plenty of time taking in the vista.

The Alcazar was all that you can imagine a castle must be. A must when in Segovia, it will fill the expectations of anyone and everyone. Its price was reasonable and the radio guide was very useful. Beautiful and magical. You wont regret the visit.

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
