Visited Sept 2013 and it was enjoyable. Overall once you've seen so many of these like we did on our week in Andalucia (with a stop over in Morocco for even more similar places – we were Mooped, I mean Moored-out!). The artwork and dedication to design and detail was of course not paralleled with anything else I’ve seen in... More

Get the audio guide. Spend plenty of time there - we arrived at 10 and no queue and spend 3 hours there. The gardens are peaceful and stunning. The Alcazar is a fascinating place to spend time.

We went here first as it was somewhere I really wanted to go. It is huge and very beautiful and interesting. I love walking so had no problem but take comfy shoes and layers and perhaps some water. For those who love photography you will be in paradise! There is lots of information about the different areas in english and... More

A must see location. The interiors are very beautiful with tranquil outdoor courtyards, but the gardens are truly stunning. I recommend allotting yourself at least an hour and a half to tour the compound. Pictures are welcome throughout, with several great photo locations. One unexpected surprise was the two free roaming peacocks we encountered within the garden!

Its an interesting place worthy to visit and get acquainted with the architecture of the distinguished epoch of Spain. Beautiful well-maintained garden. You can also visit inside premises. And its exactly in the central spot from which you can proceed further to Cathedral and towards the river bank for boat excursion. Standing with your back towards Alkasar and facing Cathedral...

Stunning palace and grounds. A beautiful display of Moorish architecture plus wonderful gardens with peacocks, orange trees, and even an old labyrinth made of cypress. Very well preserved and cared for. We spent several hours here - perfect!

The Alcazar was a rather beautiful surprise. The palace itself has an exhibition of ceramic tiles from centuries ago to more recent times which was interesting. The little courtyards you come across as you wonder around are very pretty and tranquil, some planted and some with fish ponds. However, the gardens are the real jewel - much more extensive than...

Top Attraction in Seville. Situated 2 mins walk from the Cathedral/Giralda Tower. Entrance 9 Euros/adult or 2 Euros concession price for students. Amazing architecture with beautiful tilework and amazing well maintained gardens with some peacocks! The palace is open only in the mornings for an extra surcharge. Worth visiting early in the mornings as gets crowded very quickly. Will take... More
