The Royal Seat of San Lorenzo de El Escorial is a historical residence of the King of Spain in the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. It is one of the Royal Sites and functions as a monastery, royal palace, museum, and school. Felipe II and the architect Juan Bautista de Toledo designed the monument based on the descriptions of Solomon’s Temple.

More gifs of castles. Sorry not sorry, I could not resist.
Today, the incredibly beautiful Alcazar of Segovia, one of the favorite residences of the Trastamaras. I should add that the Alcazar suffered afire on the second half of the 19th century and part (only part, for example the fire destroyed the roof added by Philip II) of its fairy tale looks are derived from the subsequent restoration.
