I paid 11 euros to visit this and i was out of there in 10 minutes - the Alcazar is nice but i do not need to look at walls for hours... it was so warm in Sevilla that it was hard to enjoy it.

Wonderful gardens and very well kept,not many options for refreshments so bring your own and if very hot day bring a hat! Found the price of entry relatively reasonable

The entrance is free an hour before the closing time. There will be a loooooong line forming so do queue up earlier. The interiors are stunning and I can see why it makes such a great setting for the TV series. Definitely a must-see for visitors here.

We were lucky enough to visit the Alcazar twice - by day and at night. First, we booked online for the evening tour which took place at 10pm (the last of 3 time slots) and was a guided 're enactment' - with actors in costume and dialogue in Spanish! Although we didn't realise this is what we had signed up... More

This review is for the night tour, ONLY. There is no description in English at all. There are actors, playing out the history of the palace. It was hokey.

The local history of the royal family & government. Beautiful palace. A bit hot in July but worth the visit.

Such a relaxing place to visit. Choose whether you want to treat it as a museum (take headphones for a tour) or as a place to marvel and relax (bring your book, sit down anywhere). It's a quiet heart in the city

Very much a second cousin of the Alhambra in Granada, even though it was built by the Christians, as the ruler of Granada owed a favour to Seville, so sent his best moorish architects and builders to work on it. The gardens are stunning, but the palace itself contains a couple of jaw-dropping rooms. The first is the hall of... More
