Gorgeous views at this real live castle! A short hour tour will give you the most about the castle. Take a taxi to the top to maximize your time there!

Disney-esque exterior. The grounds surrounding it are also lovely. We could have spent more time, but we were on a tour.

I really enjoyed the visit of the Alcazar De Segovia. From his incredible location to it’s construction. The visit of the different room with a beautiful decor of ceilings and the Armory rooms with interesting displays and design of canon and engineering.
