If you are in Madrid, it's a must! It's only one hour from downtown. If you have time, I suggest to visit all Guadarrama area (Manzanares, Pedriza, Navacerrada, Rascafría). If you have only one day, visit Segovia, but stop here for a brunch for a...More

We enjoyed the guided visit. It had a number of historical references and was very well performed by two actors that alleged to be living there. We were lucky and attended a middle ages fight in the gardens of the castle

Admittedly it's a heavily restored castle but it you're a castle lover then this should be on your list of things to see. I can't believe I've lived less than 20 minutes away for nearly seven years and only just got around to going inside....More

I visited this small castle many years ago but now there is more to see. Great views over the lake/embalse. I didn't think it was worth paying to visit the small gardens, they can be seen from above.

Very well maintained, nice views and interiors well worth seeing. I completely lost myself in the library, their collection is beautiful. The price is adequate to the visit but it may be a little to much to people on a budget. Nevertheless, there are times...More
