Toledo and Segovia Tour with Alcazar Entrance from Madrid

1,016 reviews
Visiting both Toledo and Segovia in a day from Madrid is near impossible without a car rental and some serious time management. On this trip, you get to see both cities as a guide charts their history, minus the stress of organizing transport. Plus, you’re certain of seeing the key sights, including Toledo’s Primada Cathedral, and Segovia’s Roman aqueduct and Alcazar. Ideal if you’re pressed for time and want a day out of Madrid.

It was difficult to get an appointment to see the Fernan Nuñez Palace, but my wife was able to talk to the man in charge of the guided visits and we were able to see the palace at 11:30 am, with a group of women who were widows. Our guide was Maria Louisa, and she was very good. The palace was ordered in 1790 by Miguel Jose de la Cueva, the 13th Duque de Alburquerque. His architect was Antonio Lopez Aguado. He constructed the first nucleus. Later in the middle of the 19th century, his grandson Felipe Osorio y de la Cueva, 7th Conde de Cervellon, married to the second Duquesa de Fernan Nuñez, decided to convert the building into the most beautiful palace of Madrid to entertain his aristocratic friends. He chose as his architect Martin Lopez Aguado, the son of the first architect. One frequent visitor at the palace was Queen Isabel II. The most beautiful rooms were the Isabelino Salon and the Ballroom. In 1940, after the Spanish Civil War (the palace was spared damage during the war), the widow of the 5th Duque de Fernan Nuñez sold the palace to the railroad organizations. Today it is owned by Renfe and Adif. In 1967 a remodeling took place to adapt it to its new use as offices.
