Segovia Route Of The Castles

The route of the castles in one of the possibilities offered by the Segovia province within the great architectural heritage that has.As the first stop we would take the strength of the capital El Alcazar. It is at the confluence of the rivers Clamores and Eresma, adapting to the rock on which rises, forming more or less a rectangle pointed. He is supposed to be the image recreated by Disney to create yours, and apart from its interior stands out for its views, and above all by his image from the bottom in the meadow of la Fuencisla.Leaving the city we will arrive to the town of Turegano, which highlights his castle in an altozano on the people. He became church by what we can see highlight the belfry next to the battlements.We would be the third Castle in the village of Pedraza. Town walled with a single door access and medieval character that ends after an Esplanade in the Castle owned by the descendants of the painter Zuloaga.Not far from Pedraza, we can move to the castle of Castilnovo situated in a wooded area and the peculiarity of not being high on the ground but rather in an area low terrain.Following the tayecto we arrive at Sepulveda.

where there are only some remnants of his castle on the main square of the village, but it is worth visiting the town by its urban set and Romanesque churches which possesses.From here we desplazariamos up Cuellar, second city in inhabitants in the province of Segovia. Cuellar castle today houses a teaching Center and is a clear example of the Castilian fortifications.We would end up the visit in the town of Coca, where we find a magnificent Castle of mudejar style brick and with a wide moat. It also houses an educational center and belongs to the House of Alba. Personally I think next to the Alcazar of more aesthetic beauty. This route can be done starting at any of the locations, and if you visit Fund is difficult to do the route in a day. The haystack of Pedraza (in Santiuste de Pedraza) is a rustic House for rent very well situated within this route if you intend to stay overnight.The castles are only a small part of the architectural, cultural, natural, scenic and gastronomic richness offered by these villages and towns. The visit is worth, you will already see it. Original author and source of the article.
