The amazing Roman aqueduct apart Segovia isn't the prettiest town in Castille but the Alcazar makes up for it. We experienced no queues at the ticket office and no school parties, in fact the palace was fairly quiet on a Wednesday afternoon. From the courtyard through the armoury and the state rooms to the school of artillery museum there is... More

This place must be missed by many visitors as it's hidden away on the far side of town from the bus terminus/aqueduct, and it's not as publicised as the aqueduct or main plaza. We took a taxi round to where lots of people also take a lift to view it, far below it on a meadow at the bottom of... More

Great views, great historical value, great interior displays. Take the time to go into the tower and get 360 views of the region. There are also families of storks nesting in the treetops to watch and enjoy. The audio guide was simple to use (multiple languages) and photography was allowed in the interior. Best to go early in the day... More

I visited Alcazar with friends and we had this great guide, she told us all about the history of this place. It reminded me of the castles we have in the Czech Republic. There are great views from the balcony and from the back of the castle.

The castle was the inspiration behind Walt Disney's Cinderella Castle and it was even snowing when I visited there! You can buy tickets either online or from the ticket office for walking up to the Alcazar and it was really great to enjoy the panoramic view of Segovia at the top of the tower. P.S. it was really crowded and... More

Absolutely amazing castle, and what rich history. Standing in the hall where Colombus proposed the idea of the New World to Ferdinand & Isabel. Wow! And the climb to the top was worth having our breath taken away. It took us a little while to get to the top. Phew! Beautiful views though.

Well worth a visit despite the back stories of reconstruction to reinforce the fairy tale image; the views from the Alcazar are stunning and the interior far from bereft of interest. If you like a challenge take the climb up the tower (if you want a real challenge try the same in Durham). To get a better view of the... More

I flashed my student card and only had to pay a couple of Euros to go inside the Alcazar. The outside it super impressive and forbidding and the inside is just as grand albeit on a more personal scale. Always look up to the ornate ceilings to appreciate the level of detail and craftsmanship used. I loved visiting this site... More

For centuries the Alcázar proudly overlooks Segovia’s surroundings from its hilltop between two rivers. Inside, the rooms and decoration focus mainly on the eras between the reigns of the Catholic Kings and Felipe II, although there are a few rooms themed on older times. The visit is very interesting, but the main feature is definitly the climb to the Tower.... More

After paying a small fee to go in we toured this beautiful gem of a building. Seeing armour, tapestries, ornate ceilings, weapons etc. Looking out from the windows provided lovely views of the surrounding areas and gardens below. We paid 2 euros extra to climb the many steps up the tower (not for the faint-hearted or un-fit- although I just... More
