The Alcázar of Segovia is a medieval castle located in the city of Segovia, Castile and León, Spain. Rising out on a rocky crag above the confluence of two rivers near the Guadarrama mountains, it is one of the most distinctive castle-palaces in Spain by virtue of its shape– like the bow of a ship. The alcázar was originally built in the 11th or 12th century by the Almoravid dynasty to serve as a fortress but has served as a royal palace where twenty-two kings have reigned, a state prison, a Royal Artillery College, and a military academy since then.[1] The castle overlooks a valley with the Eresma River and is a symbol of the Old City of Segovia. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. [1]Today, the alcazar is used as a museum and a military archives building since its declaration as a National Archive in the Royal Decree in 1998.[1]
