You could be forgiven for thinking that there are not many tourists in Seville when you take the time to explore this wonderful building and grounds. There are places in the garden that allow you to be on your own.

Built by the Arabs, this Palace was then preserved, restored and used as a Palace of King Ferdinad & other Catholic rules. Very beautiful building with outstanding gardens and a lot of interesting futures.

The Alcazar is a great place to visit and hopefully you see it before the Alhambra in Granada which superceeds all. Take advantage of a sunny day to picnic in the gardens and don't miss out on the restored waterorgan (one of four of its kind remaining in the world) that plays on the hour. Also check out the gift... More

An interesting and beautiful place to visit in the centre of Seville. Lovely exhibition of tiles and ceramics, fans and other art works. Gardens stunning, even in winter.

The Alcazar is the one thing you can't miss in Sevilla. It's truly magnificent and couples European with mosaic\Islamic architecture with the details you'll find at the Alhambra in Granada but with incredible mosaic that are not in Alhambra. It's a breathtaking experience to walk through the palace and gardens. If there is one ancient structure to see in Spain... More

Visited on our last morning in Seville. Reminded us a bit of the Alhambra in Granada but not quite as impressive. Lovely buildings but the highlight was the beautiful and peaceful gardens. Worth paying extra for the audio tour.

So when you hear of Seville, you hear that you should go to Alcazar. And you should. It is breathtaking to say the least. Everything is so well done, down to the manicured gardens and the littlest tiles. It is a good combination of natural and manmade beauty. It's a little odd maybe that this giant palace is empty.

We visited Seville on our first stop in Andalucia and it was a good introduction to the regions Moorish architecture. The Gardens were amazing as was the interior of the buildings

If you go to Seville then you have to visit Alcazar and get an idea of the fantastic history of the place, the area and the rulers who lived there
