This was my favorite attraction in Segovia! The castle is so beautiful, the exterior, views, ornately decorated rooms; everything is gorgeous. We didn't take the audio tour, but didn't feel lost or confused. I don't think it's necessary. We paid extra to climb the steps...More

Segovia is only 1 hr North West of Madrid, and well worth the trip. The Alcazar de Segovia has a dramatic location, perched on a hill on the edge of town. It was an inspiration for the castle in Walt Disney´s movie Snow White and...More

Less than 8 Euros for the castle and the tower. I don't recommend visiting the Alcazar if you don't climb the tower. It's view of the surrounding area as well as Segovia and the cathedral are unmatched. It's easy to see the inspiration for Walt...More

We spent about two hours visiting the alcazar and thoroughly enjoyed the history, art, architecture and vistas from the top. Our self guided audio tour was helpful and I would recommend it. I was blown away to hear that most of the rooms were intricate...More

So gorgeous, and small enough that you can imagine living in this castle. Tourists can explore all over the inside and outside of the castle, which contains an impressive armory collection as well. My only regret was that the weather was so hot (August) that...More
