Spain’s Very Own Walt Disney Inspired, Cinderella Castle
Since its creation back in Roman times this majestic castle has served its purpose as a military fortress and has constantly changed its appearance since, particularly in the middle ages when it was used as a royal palace and home to generations of the Spanish royal family.
One of the most famous inhabitants of this castle was King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, who whilst residing at Segovia promised Christopher Columbus the financial backing he needed in order to discover America, and sent him west. This is history and architecture combined at its finest, with its winding alleys, pinnacles, drawbridge & moat, lavish furnishings, imposing profile and echoes of generations gone by.
