Alcazar Of Seville, Seville Reviews - Write a Review
One of the most beautiful building and location I’ve ever seen. It awestruck me completely! There are some hidden gem within the location - one of the balcony was behind the plant and inside was so pretty. As in you waked into the fairy tale land. Definitely can spend all day if not two days. Place to fall in love with.
Definitely buy tickets in advance. We were there end of Oct and the queue was still madness. Advance tickets whisks you straight in with a direct line. agree with other reviewers that if you are doing Alhambra already, this might not be necessary as they are very similar. But if you are into mudejar architecture and gardens then it’s well worth a visit. The upper palace’s private was interesting but not really worth the price.
This place is insanely beautiful and enormous. I went with my boyfriend on a sunny Thursday afternoon. Before we knew it, 2 hours went by and we still hadn't seen everything .. €9.50 entrance and we didn't have to buy tickets in advance. The line went pretty quickly too- we stood in it for maybe 20 minutes. GO HERE!
Architecture and landscape at their best. A stunning agglomeration of courts and gardens plus highly ingenious ornamental patterns, both geometric and curvelinear, on walls, ceilings and structural elements. The complexity of the 2d and 3d ornamental designs reflects the creative minds of the craftsmen that produced them; masters of mathematics and geometry!.
Fantastic place to visit. Come here mid-week in the morning to avoid queues. So much architecture to see and then after grabbing a coffee head off into extensive gardens. All for €9.50!
