Magical Alcazar

Ooh, before I forget. I wanted to put in this beautiful, almost magical piece of history in my blog. Last week we travelled all the way to Segovia, about 3 hours from here, by bus. My roommate and I had to run and catch the bus, because we are always late, but that’s another story.
Anyway, this town Segovia is the home of the castle, which inspired the castles is the Walt Disney cartoons! Alcazar de SegoviaWe got a whole tour of it, and it was just amazing to be there. The ceilings are so much better in real life than on pictures; the space is enormous, the view is gorgeous. It was a little chilly, even inside; and the way to the top of the castle was LONG, on a winding twisted staircase – but it was so worth going. The view at the top was breathtaking, though windy =]
