An hour outside of Madrid sits el Alcazar de Segovia, the castle that is rumored to have inspired Cinderella's Castle in Walt Disney World.
Coming upon it at sunrise, this majestic hilltop fortress does not fail to impress. Many visitors head to Segovia for its famous Roman aqueduct, but this nearby castle is the real scene stealer. Well maintained and available for touring, it's a beautiful way to time-travel. Further info here: http://www.alcazardesegovia.com/visita-alcazar-de-segovia
