Firstly, allow plenty of time to fully appreciate this stunning building. Secondly, it's worth getting the audio guide. There are many "groups" going around so we moved about randomly to avoid them, and that worked well. We've been here in April before, and taken a picnic, and spent the whole afternoon in the gardens, but it's too cold to do... More

Well, after doing the cathedral one day, we opted to do the Alcazar, but thought since we were slightly tired that we would just self guide ourselves through it without the headset or guide. Well, we paid our entryway and walked through. Luckily I had a Rick Steve's travel book to help with some explanation of the different rooms. This... More

Highly recommend and use the audio guide. The self-guided audio tour took us about 1.5-2 hours and it was worth it. Unfortunately it was a rainy day so the gardens were closed, but we did get to see them from the distance. The palace has a rich history and the audio tour does a great job explaining the rooms and... More

A must see! We spent over three hours there wandering the rooms filled with the ceramics of Seville and tapestries by great masters. The gardens were amazing and seemed endless.

A memorable site and the most beautifully tended gardens. Spain is indeed fortunate to have such sites and this was a treat - although heresy of heresies we have to say that we prefer Cordoba's Alcazar so try and get to both.

Whilst we were in Seville on a day tour we visited the Alcazar. We didn't see all of it as we didn't have enough time but are glad it wasn't too busy. The gardens are spectacular and beautiful. We couldn't believe how beautiful this place was. We probably only walked around a third of this beautiful place and were surprised... More

Alcazar is one of the key monuments of this beautiful town. It is an architectural delight and has Spanish as well as English touches to it. Though we were not able to explore the gardens, I've heard that they are one of the most amazing ones from some of the people we met in Seville. It has a great leisurely... More

We had stayed in Seville a week before we finally decided to go inside Alcazar. We had already visited the Alhambra and we were certain that this would pale in comparison. We were wrong! This place was beautiful. It was easier to get around. We bought tickets and you can stay as long as you want -I don't know about... More
