Fortress of the Kings of Castile and Royal School of Artillery Its picture has been around the world: a unique fairy tale-like palace that brings together architectural tastes of different monarchs. It tells -to all those who come to know it- ancient palatial stories. Austere, as they were the Castilian kings, raised on the rock at the confluence of the valleys of the rivers Eresma and Clamores, the Alcázar seems to watch over the city. Its beautiful Tower keep, often compared to the bow of a boat sailing between the two rivers, is of a stunning beauty. Tourists are amazed to realize that the fortress is a living part of this Castilian city, chosen as a place of residence for many of the monarchs of the Trastámara dynasty.

A wonderful place to visit. The architecture and history is simply amazing and a place suitable for children and adults as well. It has many exhibits in different areas of the palace. I loved them all.

Definitely one of the highlights and a must see. The the interior and exterior can be visited. Its a 152 steps to the top of the tower but worth the climb. You will not be disappointed.

Having only visited castles in the Andalusian region of Spain previously, I was pleasantly surprised by the traditional Northern European style of this castle. It is quite picturesque, and definitely worth visiting.

The alcazar of segovia is beautiful and reminds you of Walt Disneys fairytale castles ! There are 156 steps up to the tower but they are definitely worth it ! Not to be missed on your visit to Segovia

It was a delightful sight just like the Disney movies It is walking distance from the cathedral And it is best to explore Segovia by foot from the aqueduct to alcazar

Probably one of the coolest castles that we have ever visited. It is said that the castle's design helped to inspire Disney's Cinderella castle. You are able to walk around the entire main floor, and can climb the 150ish stairs of the tower to see...More
