The towering castle at Segovia in Spain heavily damaged in a massive fire

The eight hundred year Alcázar at Segovia had been used since 1764 as a training college for military cadets. The fire caused severe damage but it was not until 1881 that the government ordered it restored.  It then became once again a military academy.  Today it is one of the most popular tourist sites in Spain.  (By John Osborne)
