Just loved it.

Not extensive, but enthralling. Good views out over the old town. The gardens are a real oasis and the source of this years marmalade

No need to visit this palace in winter: few rooms to see, nothing special no forniture, gardens without flowers. I'm sure this shoud be much more attractive and beautiful in May.

Entrance was cheap and there was no queue. The best views were from the top of the tower but beware of the narrow steps and the people coming and going both ways non-stop. The interior was nothing especial and the patio area no very well looked after (but some pretty mosaics). One of the archaeological sites looked messy and dirty.... More

Not much at all within the building. We spent the majority of our time walking through the gardens. Given that it was January only a few of the more hardy plants were flowering.

If you are visiting Cordoba then you will do both yourself and the city an injustice if you do not visit the Alcazar. Certainly there are better presented palaces in other parts of Spain but this one has a very deep and rich history and it is worth taking the time to read a little about it. The gardens are... More

Awe inspiring and you can't miss it when you come to Sevilla. Monday's they offer a free hour from 4-5. Get there early to line up so you get to visit all the floors and bridge!

We payed the full price of the ticket, but some ponds had no water in them. Not much flowers and some parts closed. Totally no wheelchair/pram accessible.

When I arrived there it was at 19 o clock. The responsable said to me, we re gona close at 20:45. The best part to see there it is the gardens. But unfortunately it was dark and this place didn't have enough light to show its beauty. So I try to walk around and appreciate what I could. I advise... More

When one initially enter the Alcazar one enters what was a Spanish Royal Palace area - white rooms, some furniture - to be honest quite dull..... However When you leave the building and have the opportunity to enter the gardens you get to see what all the fuss is about. Although not extensive the grounds are splendid, even in January....
