Alcazar Of Segovia, Segovia Reviews

  • Would probably skip going inside. It is impressive but in my opinion, the fortress itself is beautiful from the bottom of the hill. It is a bit of a hike to get back up the hill. We did go up the tower and you can get some great views but for the cost, I wouldn't say it is really worth it.

  • A World Heritage Site, the Segovia Fortress is a castle, located in Segovia, Spain. Magnificent and amazing to watch, during sun shine the structure looks breathtaking. Rising out on a rocky crag above the confluence of two rivers near the Guadarrama mountains, it is one of the most distinctive castle in Spain by virtue of its shape – like the bow of a ship. The Castle was originally built as a fortress but has served as a royal palace, a state prison, a Royal Artillery College and a military academy since then. It is currently used as a museum and a military archives building.

  • Magnificent!!! The rooms are so beautiful, you can almost transport yourself to the 12th century. The Alcázar was originally built as a fortress but has served as a royal palace, a state prison, a Royal Artillery College and a military academy since then. It is currently used as a museum and a military archives building.

  • Great place! Also available English translation. The price is also normal. No crazy touristic prices

  • If you like medieval castles, this is the one to see. Although this is a rebuilt castle, you will see the history that comes with the display and the restoration of the structures. There were remnants of the original tiles and some portions of the original walls but if you open your imagination you will be transported to the bygone era when the King and Queen runs the show more or less. There was a bit of historical connection with King Philip and the Philippines. It was nice when the tour guide mentioned it. It made my history courses from long ago come alive. The view of the surrounding vistas is breathtaking. The intrigue and stories relayed by the guide about the "crazy queen" and the mysterious death of a young prince added some showbiz interest to the site. A glimpse of the everyday life during those times even for the royalty was interesting- (referring to the hole on the floor over the river for a toilet for the royalty to use). On a more touristy note, I am glad to see the armory, paintings as well as the over all restoration of the castle, complete with a moat. This is a a must see in Segovia.
