Create an itinerary including Alcazar of Segovia
A fortress that was part of the inspiration for Walt Disney's Cinderella Castle, Alcazar of Segovia is one of Spain's most popular historical sites, once home to the Spanish royal family. The first thing you'll notice about the castle is its characteristic shape, designed to resemble the bow of a ship. Although this design may have been intended to showcase Spain's military might, it also served an aesthetic purpose. In 1862, the original interior was damaged in a fire, but many of the rooms are restored. Don't miss the Hall of Kings, where you'll find a mural depicting Spanish royalty through Juana la Loca.

  • Impressive structure in excellent condition. It sits on a pointed plateau with some fantastic views. Educational, historical and beautiful.

  • This place was super cool! It was definitely like a castle out of a book. I gave it 4 starts because while it's cool to look around, if you want any information on the rooms you really have to get a tour. They have some info but its not much
  • It's a very small castle with great interior. The tower is very low, so the view is not so great - better go up the cathedral tower. The timed slots are not enough to read and process all the info about the castle, so the viewing is really rushed. It also needs more info in English and better signposting for the exhibits.
