"royal castle Alcazar" Segovia Things to Do Tip by el_ruso

Segovia Things to Do: 295 reviews and 743 photos


This is the most famous castle in Spain, and since Spain is the land of castles, I had very high expectations. And I was not disappointed!

Originally started by the Romans and established by the Arabs, it has reached its pinnacle under the Spanish Habsburgs. Alonso X converted one of the towers into an astronomical observatory, and all subsequent monarchs have embellished and expanded the castle.

Directions: the Western corner of the old town

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
