Go out the castle and turn left, go downstairs ,then keep go by left. There's a pretty meadow where can take the whole view of the castle.

Lindsey, the Castle is amazing. Beautiful vistas of the city and surrounding area. Too many steps to the Tower of John II. Not enough ghosts, just the right amount of tapestries. 3€ audio tour is good

El Alcázar de Segovia, un castillo digno de ser mencionado en los cuentos de hadas, ha sido desde Residencia de Reyes hasta Sede Militar, pasando por prisión. Enlazamos a un artículo en MiNube.com

Pese a su apariencia de cuento de hadas, es una de las fortificaciones de España que más ha sufrido y recibido sus correspondientes reconstrucciones. Es una visita obligada llena de leyendas ;-)

El Alcázar fue construido originalmente como una fortaleza, pero este Castillo-Palacio ha servido como Palacio Real, Prisión estatal, Centro de Artillería y Academia Militar; a destacar su torre.

西班牙王室后来移居马德里,这以后,这里成为监狱200年(还是因为城堡森严阿),直到1762年,当时的国王下令在这里建立皇家炮兵学院。在1862年,这里失火,烧毁了很多屋顶,重建花了很多年, 一直到三十几年以后,这里才恢复如初,当时的国王又下令把这个城堡拨给国防部,作为军校使用。这到今天,西班牙的国家战争档案还保存在这里呢
