Segovia Alcazar

I nearly gave this a miss, as I was so fed up with the cold damp weather yesterday. This would have been a big mistake as this is THE Castle in Spain! I got there early, just after 10.00 am., avoiding big school groups of teenagers converging on the place, but at the same time as Korean and Japanese tourists.

Both the interior palatial rooms and the ramparts with their views outwards to the surrounding countryside were beautiful. There were also lots of medieval weapons, cannons and armour on display and a museum of armoury which told you more than you ever wanted to know about the subject!
