The Segovia Alcazar combines some features from the European castles and the mudejar tradition. Exciting building surrounded by steep cliffs and deep trench at the entrance. The rooms and halls inside are charmingly decorated, especially the ceilings. There is the good collection of medieval weapons.

The Alcázar is one of the must see attractions of Segovia (The others are de Aqueduct and the Cathedral). Inside the castle you can see the austerity with which the Kings of Castile lived. There are stunning views of the countryside. Try going up Juan II's tower. A bit of effort but the splendid views are a great reward.

The castle is visually stunning both because of its appearance and its location. Inside there are about 15-120 rooms with an audio tour available. Although the castle is old, some parts of the castle were reconstructed in the 1800s after a fire destroyed several rooms, ceiling and roofs.

The outlook is good but that's all. Not value for money for paying money for visiting the museum inside. We're disappointed as the displays are not informative.

Segovia did not disappoing and one of the gems of Segovia is Alcazar. Walt Disney copied the spires for his version of Cinderalla's castle. Interesting artifcats, cannons and bows await inside.

The Alcazar is located at the top of a high hill, no wonder it was not penetrated. The audio guide tour was wonderful and gave you great insight into the history of the city, palace and the people who lived there.

We visited this castle as part of a tour group. Much of the castle was off limits, but we did get to see the throne room and some of the key rooms/art pieces. Some nice stained glass and mosaics, but all of it restored as the original was burnt down in 1860's and restored later. Even the restoration has become... More

It looks impressive from the outside even with the scaffolding. Due to the renovation they have just a few rooms open to the public. The castle park is a nice place to relax and appreciate great views.

It was lovely to see the castle in such a great state of conservation. I really enjoyed this visit and would recommend it to anyone with older children. The reason being is in order to reach the top of the castle you have to go up a very narrow staircase which is difficult for a younger child but once up... More
