One of the dominant landmarks of Segovia is the majestic Alcázar castle.  It was here that Queen Isabella promised Columbus the money to finance his voyage to America.  If this castle looks familiar it is because it said to be Walt Disney's inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty castle at Disneyland.

One of the distinctive features of the castle is the roof.  King Felipe II had slate put on it in the 16th century.
