I'm not sure why there are so many and descriptions and pictures of the interior of the Alcazar in this review. The Mirador de la Pradera de San Marcos is a patch of field about a 15 minute walk from the Alcazar itself. So, when...More

For a stunning full view of the castle this mirador is the place to stop. From this vantage point you can see that the castle really does have that fairy tale look.

Great introductory view of Segovia, at a place that is tough to get to by walking. Great place for family photo.

Damaged by a 19th centurry fire but faithfully restored to its medieval splendour. The audio guide is excellent, a piece of Segovia which represents the height of its importance.

Not a lot to say, it's simply wonderful. Don't miss it when you are in Segovia. Everything is walking distance, so no excuses!

Lovely views of the entire Prairie. You can see from the sprint and everything looks amazing especially at night. It's a very romantic place to be with your loved one.

Several reviewers suggest going here after the castle, but I recommend going first, as it gives you proper perspective of what you are about to see. Once you are right up next to the Alcazar, you might not fully appreciate its scale and grandeur. The...More

It is the same site ... I'm not sure why it's listed twice on Tripadvisor, under different names. There is only one entrance, which leads directly in to the castle and museum.

You can take a taxi from the Acueducto, who'll wait for you to take pics of the superb view, for less than 10 Euros. Or if you've time and you're fit, you could do the interesting walk back below the castle and through the... More
