Description

The Royal Alcázar of Seville is a monument full of history, an amalgam of cultures that are left their mark over the centuries. It is also the oldest Royal Palace still in use in Europe and one of Seville's most emblematic symbols.

Originally a Moorish fort, the palace is renowned as one of the most beautiful in Spain, being regarded as one of the most outstanding examples of mudéjar architecture found on the Iberian. It was registered in 1987 by Unesco as a World Heritage Site.

We invite you to share with us a guided tour through every civilization and culture that lived in this city: Romans, Visigoths, Muslims, Almoravids, Almohads and Christians.

To begin, you will access to the main entrance the Puerta del León (Lion's Gate). It will take you to discover the different styles (Islamic-Moorish, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque) of the different rooms of the Alcázar: the Hall of Justice, the Court of Monteria, whose name comes from the hunters who accompanied the king on his hunting parties, Room of the Admiral and House of Trade (Casa de Contratación).

In El Patio de las Doncellas (The Courtyard of the Maidens), you will discover the legend that says the Moors demanded 100 virgins every year as tribute from Christian kingdoms in Iberia.

Surrounded by ancient walls, are the gardens, which represent a fundamental part of the Alcázar. The walk through the gardens is one of the most pleasant of Seville. They are arranged in terraces of verdant vegetation, with a wide variety of fragrant flowers, plenty of orange trees, palms fountains and pavilions. It is a fresh and quiet place for rest and relaxation in the city.

The Alcázar has inspired numerous painters such as Joaquin Sorolla, Emilio Sanchez Perrier, José Villegas Cordero and Manuel García Rodríguez. In October 2014, it also hosted the filming of the fifth season of the television serie of the US network HBO Game Of Thrones.
