I found you are interested in the view , go for the tower whose entrance costs only 2.5 euros vs 11 for the entire visit. The palacio is interesting, but if you have seen a lot of palacio interiors and are in a rush, just skip. It is interesting but quite small.

So so beautiful, this castle is very Disney like. I was underwhelmed by the interior of the building until I went up to the tower. This is a additional to the Normal ticket which the attendant suggested I should get and I'm glad he did. The view was simply amazing. Make sure you go up! For 8€ it was really... More

This is a must see. The royal artillery college was housed here and this castle has a fine collection of armor from medieval times for history buffs. Great views can be had for those who are willing to climb the 150 steps to the towers!

We were unprepared for how beautiful and almost fairy-tale like this amazing palace/fortress would be - both the exterior and interior rival Neuschwanstein! As well, the Palace is full of wonderful exhibits, featuring period armour and weaponry, and boasts a marvelous view of the surrounding countryside and villages that (aside from visible roads with cars) appears virtually unchanged from Medieval...

This is a must see if you're in the town. Outside is very good you can see the remains of the moat surrounding part of the castle. The inside of the castle is well done and very informative.

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!
