The headline says it all. A stunningly well preserved and presented feast for the senses. A real royal palace with vistas, textures sounds and grandeur. Huge numbers of parties from cruise ships marred the experience for us and we spent a lot of time avoiding the mobs being guided round (40+ numbers) However it seems inevitable in such a location...

No need to mention the good bits. We went today and ALL the gardens were closed....still cost 10 euro. No mention that they were closed either.

As the cathedral this is also a Place you have to see when in Seville. The special is that it was built by a Spanish king, not the arabs

This is a truly stunning place. We came here primarily because the 5th series of Game of Thrones is to be filmed here and I am so glad that we did. There are gardens, buildings and rooms each with their own unique stamp and style. Different cultures are fused together and the gardens are like stepping into a whole new... More

This place was packed the day before with a line around the corner so we passed on going. We were out walking and saw there was no line and decided to take a chance. It was so worth it. A feast for your eyes!!! DONT PASS THIS UP!

Gorgeous buildings, magnificent gardens, great art work.....terrific all-around aesthetic. We went late in the afternoon ( around 5 PM) when it was cooler and not so crowded.

We booked onto one of the night-time visits and it was a great experience. The rooms are all well-lit and there are only 40 people on the tour, so there is a greater sense of atmosphere in the place as you move around. The event is hosted by actors and they explain various parts of the history of the Alcazar... More

A lot of the same Moorish architecture, beautiful gardens. Maybe more opulent than the Alhambra. A must-do in Seville

This is a beautiful Royal Palace and should not be excluded from your itinerary if you are visiting the city of Seville. Its gardens are really lovely too, though better viewed in the Spring or early Summer.
