This palace is deceptive from the outside however the further you go into the palace the more is revealed which is amazing and delightful. The gardens are particularly worth visiting with the planning and such making them a true treat for the eyes.

Take your student card if you have one for a good discount. Had a great look around the buildings- find a map! We didn't get to look around the gardens as it closed at 7pm so make sure you allow a good few hours to allow you to see everything

Beautiful set and restored this palace and its gardens are another must see in Seville, Leave around 3 hours to view it, gardens are spectacular but my favourite feature was the indoor garden, which is a Gothic Arched underground pool... checkout the arches reflection in the water

Labrynthine treat of seemingly endless highly decorated rooms, tranquil courtyards and formal gardens as well as more wild spots and a real maze. The summer house and viaduct fillled pool were my favourites - worth spending a full day exploring and very well worth the entry cost

Great place with some fabulous achitectures. Well worth a visit. My daughter will use some of the wonderful pictures she took in her final art project.

The amount of detail that went into this palace is insane. I would definitely recommend getting the audio guide to go along with your tour. We spent the majority of our time here following along with the audio guide at our own pace. We did not have time to walk through the gardens as we had to leave town (and... More

This is 9.50 Euros very well spent. The huge palace and gardens will leave you in awe. Go early - as soon as it opens - to avoid the groups. The little cafe in the garden is also really lovely before 11am.

After visiting the Alhambra in Granada earlier in the holiday, everything else seemed less grand in comparison. However, in its own right the Alcazar in Seville is beautiful and we chose this building over the Cathedral as our final activity before leaving Sevilla and Andalucia to head home. We missed the maps on the way in so had to rely... More
