Generally seemed in better condition than the Alhambra, better preserved stonework, and tiles. Beautiful ornate ceilings, and on a more manageable scale. There was a fairly large... read more

One of the alleged profile attractions yet not really inspiring. The grounds are not kept as well as one would expect.

Generally seemed in better condition than the Alhambra, better preserved stonework, and tiles. Beautiful ornate ceilings, and on a more manageable scale. There was a fairly large queue when we arrived at 10am, so we went to the bullring and came back at 2pm to find the queue was only 5 or 6 people.

If you cannot get to the Alhambra in Granada, this is where you Must go to see the Moorish architecture, the gardens etc.... parts of it are strictly old time Moorish, other newer parts (like 450 yrs old!) are Christian. Great place.

Walking in you feel you've gone into another world. It's beautiful, low key and you can move at your own pace. The gardens are beautiful and good for getting lost in.

It would take many hours for all the photos that I took of this palace to up load which reflects how much I enjoyed the visit. It was here that I gained a better understanding of the way Islam and Christianity intertwined with each other and that the schism that we now have between the two detracts from both religions...

Well worth the small fee of 2 euros for students!! Architecture and gardens breath taking. Thoroughly enjoyed strolling around slowly. Highly recommend as a top thing to do in Seville if you have limited time there.

Extraordinary visit, the palace is huge and offers fantastic examples of Christian-Islamic art. Pay a visit to the gardens where scenes of game of thrones season 5 were shot!

Royal palace still used by visiting royals. Incredibly elaborate and show casing exquisite tiles from region. Beautiful and well kept gardens with impressive trees and clever planting. Definitely should not be missed.

If you have to chose, go to the Alcazar as the cathedral is a disappointment inside ( at least in my view ) and this is a delight. The rooms are spacious and airy and there are some interesting wall hangings but the gardens are lovely. We went in February so it was not that hot but I would think... More
