Damaged by a 19th centurry fire but faithfully restored to its medieval splendour. The audio guide is excellent, a piece of Segovia which represents the height of its importance.

Lovely views of the entire Prairie. You can see from the sprint and everything looks amazing especially at night. It's a very romantic place to be with your loved one.

This is the best place to take pictures of the Alcazar. Big and plain green field with a river and the castle, looks like a fairy tale.

We stopped here on the way in. We hired a private tour to Segovia and Avila and the driver stopped here. This was the best place to get the best views of the castle!
