Spain and toured it somewhat. Alcazar was the most amazing thing

entire country, Segovia, with the cathedral, aqueducts, and of course
the castle, was the most impressive.

|This castle is amazing! It took us
almost 4 hours to complete the tour because we kept stopping and looking
at everything. The ceilings in this castle are incredible. Also, you can
climb up all the way to the top. It's a lot of stairs, and kinda hard
cause they are a narrow winding set, but it's definitely worth it when
you get to see the view of the town of Segovia from up top!! If you are
going to be in this area of Spain, you must stop and see this castle!

| A little bit of
interesting information about Alcazar is that it was either used or used
as a model for labels of the NBC miniseries, THE 10TH KINGDOM which was
awesome...I just recently found this out and it is incredibly exciting
to know something this amazing does exist.

1964. Was truly one of the most memorable sites seen during a two
year tour of Europe. The view was fantastic and the people were
equally fantastic. Hope that Spain and Segovia have retained that

|I visited this castle many years ago
and slept out under the stars (in the late autumn, so cold it made
frost) in the wheat field (I wonder if it is still there) across the galley,
if one looks from the point of the cliff. It was beautiful and truly
frozen in time. A friend of mine and I went into the basement and saw
some pretty cool things (piled up armour, swords, saddles, old flags and
standards laying around) before it was ever open to the public.

|Throughout my entire trip to Spain I
was looking forward to this castle. It was the first castle I have ever
been to. It was just beautiful. The view from the top is breath taking.
It was well worth the climb up the very narrow staircase. It is on of my
favorite places in Spain.

Historically it was wonderful but currently it is also fascinating.
Alcazar was spectacular and in the best shape inside and out of all the
castles I saw in Spain (Madrid and north). The ceilings were pure art in
this castle. The kings room and throne rooms were also elegant. The arms
room was interesting and the armor collection the best I saw. The
cathedral of Segovia the most spectacular visigothic I saw. Breathtaking
architecturally. All in all a great town. Then and now. The food

|I visited Spain last summer and Alcazar was the best one
of them all. Segovia is the perfect fairytale town. It has the
spectacular castle at the end of the town. The cliffs surrounding the
castle are breathtaking. The roman aqueduct, along with the town and
castle makes Segovia a great place. Make sure you try 'Cochinillos'.

| One of the best castles ever.
Very fairy tale like (in fact, sleeping beauty's castle was based on
this one). And the interior is as interesting as the exterior (if
not more) architecturally.
