Overview

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.

The outside is fantastic, so did Walt Disney think so. The inside is also worth a visit. The coats of armor and weapons are very interesting, so is the rest of the rooms, including the museum. A bit more info in english would be welcome...More

To come to Segovia and not see the Alcazar would be a cardinal sin. It is probably easier to walk there, having left your car outside the old quarter or you could park nearby in a paid parking. It will cost you though and during...More

I have seen many, many castles in Europe but none tops this one, in history nor in construction. Ferdinand and Isabella lived here for a time and received Columbus as well. Their throne room and bedroom are part of the tour. A fortification was present...More

Impressive building. In spite of the fire that destroyed a portion of the building, the recovery was done exceptionally well. The entrance is cheap and the audio guide helps a lot.
