    It did serve the purpose as royal palace once, after that it became a state prison. I don’t understand that – criminals imprisoned in the huge rooms of a castle? Anyways, later it got converted to Royal Artilery College; the corridors there filled with hustle and bustle of students – that made some sense. These days it is used as military academy. Interesting story . Indrani ji your pictures are perfect always and gives an idea to know and to understand all the related things about that place .

  4. I have a Spanish sister-in-law and visiting Spain has been on the cards for a long time now. Your posts are making it all the more tempting 🙂

  19. I am so excited about this post! I loved the Alcazar and the city of Segovia. We almost didn’t go because the day we had plans ended up being a holiday (we didn’t know). On top of that, the weather forecast looked bad. But we ended up going and had a fabulous time.

    Sure is like a fairy tale. Amazing 😀

  21. Great photos and I also liked that room that caught your photographer’s eye! What an amazing history and you’ve given us such a great tour!

  22. This brings back memories. I was in Segovia on a VERY cold day back in 2010. I loved the aqueduct. I didn’t visit the castle, opting for a warm place to give my aching bones some much needed heat. This is a good reason to go back. Thanks for linking up this week. #TPThursday

  27. Alessandra says:

    This does look way more nice than Alcatraz! I went last summer and it has nothing to do with it… this is GORGEOUS ! Incredible spot, would love to get to Spain to visit it for sure!

  29. Wow- Segovia looks stunnng! Madrid is on our “places to visit” list and now Segovia will definitely be added as a stop when we go to Madrid. Thanks for the info! 😀

  30. These castles never cease to amaze me. The gardens contrasting against the cold stone. The worn interiors, all of it! Amazing

    The town looks really to be a place frozen in medieval times. I am sure you could expect a knight in shining armour to emerge from the shadows anytime! The intricate art on the ceiling of the Monarch’s room is really exquisite.

    I’m just like your kids, I love castles too!

    This place looks a stunner, I’ll have to get there myself one day!
