Alcázar of Seville

A marriage of Christian and Moorish architecture.

One of the oldest palaces still in use in the modern world, the Real Alcazar presents a historic masterpiece of complementing Christian and Mudéjar architecture, and continues to be a symbol of Spanish and Mediterranean culture to all. Originally commissioned as a fortress in 913, the royal palace has since undergone multiple restorations throughout the years, and was also officially recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Walk through exquisite rooms decorated with coffered ceilings and magnificent gardens and patios filled with beautiful tiled plinths, and be amazed by the intricate amalgamation of designs from different time periods throughout history. Highlights of the palace include the Patio de las Doncellas, the Patio de las Muñecas and of course, the crown jewel of them all, the Palacio de Don Pedro. Most recently, the Alcazar has shone as an icon of pop culture, having been featured as a location for the fifth season of the popular Game of Thrones TV series.
