Alcazar Of Seville - Review
Originally a Moorish fort, the Alcazar is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe. The beautiful dwelling is divided into various sections: the Courtyard of the Maidens, the Baths of Lady Maria de Padilla, the House of Trade and various other patios. Covering the palace can easily take upto a day. The highlight here are the gardens and a park with a bar for those who want to rest occasionally. Peacocks and horse drawn carriages are a common sight with the castle. Colourful and bold, the influences of Jewish, Christian and Islam every in intricate mosaics or wall carvings. There's even a water powered organ. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Seville Itinerary 3 Days.

Alcazar Of Seville, Seville Reviews
Truly the highlight of any visit to Seville. This palace rivals the Alhambra in size, decision, gardens and detail. Well worth the price of admission. Expect to spend at least 2 hours here, preferably early or late in the day, so wear comfortable shoes! There is plenty of shade and cool areas. if you download their free app, you need to locate where you are, then click the dot closest to you for an explanation of what you're seeing.

Marvelous palace with delightful gardens. Initially, I was thinking that it was "Alhambra 'Lite.'" After spending time there, it holds it's own. Don't make the mistake of trying to compare one to the other. It has some of the features of the Alhambra but with a different flair. The stucco, mosaics and woodworking are perhaps not as extensive but retain more of the original colors. The gardens are a delightful respite.
Very impressed with the condition of this monument, a UNESCO world heritage site.. Might have been better to go earlier in the day. Be sure to get a good, local, professional guide. Our guide was fantastic and I appreciated the visit much more than if I had toured independently. The building & gardens are a real tribute to medieval Moorish and Christian architecture in magnificent concert to create a fairy-tale palace that has really stood the test of time. It's astonishing how clever the design is and how, some 800 years after construction it remains in such excellent condition. Ah, such amazing accomplishments when we work together!
It's okay. It was only 11 euros, so as far as attractions go it's a pretty good value. Seeing all the five stars led me to expect the greatest thing I've ever seen, but it was just okay. Lots of dirt paths, basic hedges, junipers that require little maintenance and half of the grounds roped off for repairs... I was expecting rare & exotic plants and beautiful artwork, but all I saw was some very crowded rooms full of tourists like myself, fountains that were not running and I waited in line for over an hour to get in.
Line was INSANELY long! We went early and we waited an HOUR in line. There might be people who will try to cut the cue (line) they did with us and so you’ll need to watch that! Well worth the wait through! There’s also pretty decent food and drink available for purchase (including beer and wine) inside by the gardens, which we really appreciated!! There’s a lot to cover inside so a nice break midway was nice on their patio. ❤️ Careful of the peacocks walking around. Some were harmless and others were aggressive and steeling food! 😂
