We walked around the Alcazar on the Free Tour & got to see & photograph the beautiful Moorish influences of the architecture. It is now a royal palace.

the entrance is quite expensive, but have a look on their website because they have discounts and free entrances at special hours. and don´t plan nothing after that... you´ll have a 2 hour walk in an incredible palace with a big amazing garden. after that you´ll need a beer and good food :)))

What an excellent day trip! The Real Alcazar was absolutely stunning, very ancient with so much history and culture. Each room was different, and the paintings and decorations had to have been hundreds of years old. The scenery was breathtaking and I could get lost in those gardens for days. I see now why the tv show Game Of Thrones... More

There is a discount for students who are 25 years and under and also for people 65 years and over. A person does need to show proof. The Alcazar is free for one hour on Monday after 4:00 but the lines are long and it is open only for one hour which is way too short of time to spend... More

The gardens of the Alacazar are really nice and there are so many orange trees! You can take your time and just wander the grounds, taking in the sights. It really is beautiful, both the nature and building. The only downside for me was the inside has been mostly stripped of furniture. It would be nice to have seen some... More

The Alcazar is a beautiful palace in the middle of the city. We had pre booked tickets online so walked straight to the fron of the queue and walked straight in. As always I was dissapointed you have to pay again to borrow the talking guides but I would advise taking them as you look at so much more. Gorgeous... More

This was one of the highlights of our time in Spain. A beautiful example Moorish building structure and exquisite detail.

The tile works are just brilliant. Its garden is breath-taking. I'm imagining myself trying to turn back time and understanding those hands that designed and carved those amazing pieces of art. History speaks for itself. There's so much beauty inside!!!
