This castle inspired Walt Disney for several of the castles he created. There were not many people here and we did our own tour. You will need to hike a bit to see the entire castle from the outside. Totally worth the walk though.

Although the aqueduct is also very nice, the Alcazar is the best landmark in this area. Full of history and with great views, it is a must to see. Good for families as well due to the armory. Location is also very nice with great views. It is a pity that a fire destroyed it and now you can only... More

Perched up high in the corner of Segovia and just off part of the towns old walls this Alcazar has enormous turreted towers it looks like something from Disneyland. The whole... More

I spent an afternoon here just poking around the castle and climbing to the top tower for a look out at Segovia. Segovia itself is small but the Alcazar is worth the trip. The structure is beautifully preserved and the armor is interesting. I would definitely take my daughter here if we wind up in Spain again.

This castle is historically important as the place of Queen Isabella's enthronement as Queen of Castile. It sits like the prow of a ship overlooking the surrounding countryside, and the views from its great windows are magnificent. The castle itself is interesting (especially the ceilings) and it houses an armaments museum that happily engaged the four young boys that I... More

The location alone is awe-inspiring. The building itself has been well-maintained. Definitely fun for all ages! Kids will like the armor, weapons, and cannons complete with cannon balls. Some of the rooms are absolutely stunning. Be sure to look up at the ornate ceilings.

Even though it was under construction when we went, it was still amazing to look at. Looks like the castle from super Mario brothers and you have to rescue Peach. The view from the tower were amazing. Top castle to visit.

My friends and I went to Segovia for the day. We went to the cathedral first and climbed the tower. Then we went to the Alcazar after lunch. Let's just say that after the cathedral, the Alcazar doesn't compare. Yes, amazing history took place here, yes it is lovely, yes there are great views. We climbed the John II tower... More
