Burg Eltz, Deutschland

Alcázar de Segovia, España
(Castle of Segovia, Spain)
The oldest testimony we have of the Alcázar is a document dating from the early days of the 12th century (1122), a short time after the town had been recaptured by Alfonso VI, which refers to the fortress as a hill-fort on the Eresma.
