Segovia, Part 2

Photo by Patrick Jones. Alcázar of Segovia. 15 May 2017.

Here is the second set of photos from our day trip to Segovia on Monday. The Alcázar of Segovia looks like a fairy tale castle, and was an inspiration for the castle in Disney's Sleeping Beauty. The fortress is surrounded by a moat and sits in a prominent location over the valley guarding the entrance to Segovia. The site has been a fortress since Roman times. Isabella of Castile later ruled from the fortress in Segovia.
