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 Alcazar 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 Trastamara dynasty.

Definitely worth visiting while in Segovia. We toured the castle in less than hour, arrived early in the morning with no crowds. However, as we were leaving LOTS of people were arriving so best to get there early to avoid crowds. The castle itself is...More

Set in some lovely gardens on a promontory point of the city, this medieval castle appears Disneyesque when one first sees it. Inside, its beautifully appointed rooms are the main attraction. In particular, the ceilings are artwork of the finest caliber, each one a unique...More

The toilets are inside the castle. You will not be allowed to use these toilets until you have gone through ticketing, which may take a long time at peak hours. There are also toilets in the cafe but they have big signs "Customers only" and...More

This place is something incredible. One regret is we did not get to see the castle from the other side in all it’s majesty, but that’s because of the large dip in the forested land beyond it. Walking inside it is incredible and you will...More

This is a can't-miss attraction in Segovia, which is an underrated visit in and of itself. More than anything, make sure you don't miss the best view of the Alcazar, which is far away from the entrance on the city side. Instead, make sure you...More
