Absolutely amazing! Much less people in the afternoon. The ques are big in the morning. You can pre buy your tickets online which I recommend, much quicker and easier. Take a good camera!!! and the gardens are gorgeous too!! Fruit trees would be all alive in the right season!

Fantastic. You could easily spend day in here. Recommend cafe in garden. Have a look on Internet for scenes to look out for from Game of Thrones. Superb

I am not a huge art, art history or architecture person but this place is so so stunning and I recommend not taking the recommended route and just getting lost in the maze that is Alcazar.

This is a must see while in Seville. Like the Mosque in Córdoba, there are examples of architecture that span many periods. The old gardens are beautiful.

Very beautiful palace with a huge garden-including a small maze where my sister and I lost our mom! The architecture is Moorish though, so if you spent time in Morocco or will spend time in Morocco, it can be skipped. We travelled through Morocco for five days, then took the ferry to Algeciras and drove to Sevilla the next day,... More

Went early before got to crowded. Gardens sublime, whole experience fantastic. Much more 'do-able' than Alambra in Granada. Brilliant. Must-do visit
