    Hauntingly beautiful! Wow, you sure are on an exploration-spree Lakshmi. You know, there is one place I could suggest(and hope you haven’t already been here!)- Stuttgart, in Germany. I have been there and saw just about everything I would have wished for- hills, castles, museums. The Christmas market was awesome. I guess reading about it might get you curious: And I would be curious to read about your experience (if and when you go).

    I am also planning to visit Segovia this month and looking at this castle reminds me of fairy tale. I also believed to be the inspiration for Walt Disney’s Castle. It is one of the most distinctive castle-palaces in Spain. Archaeological evidence suggests that the site of this Alcázar was once used in Roman times as a fortification.
