Segovia Detour

While staying in Madrid, we had a detour in the city of Segovia (I call it the “Kingdom of Segovia” because there is a castle located inside the city.). It is famous for its Roman Aqueduct that looks like a gate and barrier for the city.  The well preserved architecture was beautiful and later you would see the different designs adorn on its walls. So now let’s take a tour and appreciate the “Kingdom of Segovia”!

The design of the castle was astonishing, really intricate work. Also, did you know that this castle was one of the inspiration in making the Disney’s Cinderella castle.

The throne room of the castle. I just wish there was no barrier around the seats so that I could feel what to be like a king.

A view of the front of the castle. Another trivia, did you know why most castle are on top of a hill, it is because they used it to locate any enemies that might took over the kingdom.
