We stayed in a flat about 5 minutes walk away from this and went to see it almost every night. Its a huge building built in an arc and decorated with lots and lots of ceramic tiles. The canal and fountains add to its beauty, especially at night. A great place to wander around with the entire family even late... More

This place is huge, built with a purpose. It is an attraction that must be seen. It's part of a park that also house some government agencies.

It's a spectacular building close to a quiet park which helped us in that hot day. There are thousands of sellers round and sometimes makes a situation a bit annoying.

Well worth a visit - splendid representation of Spanish history and geography (each province represented).

Wow. Just WOW. This place is completely unique - in 40 years of travelling I have never seen anything quite like it. So serene and tranquil - and it's awesome that it was deliberately contrived for an exposition. If I lived in Seville I would come here every day just to relax.

Whether you rent a paddle boat, take a carriage ride or just walk around this plaza it will impress you. Its a nice place to visit along with the park right across the promenade. Very romantic.

Definitely the first thing to see when you get to Seville! When you reach the palace from the amazing park you feel like you're in a fairytale. Take time to look around and count on at least one hour of sightseeing. Also if the day is hot, as it can frequently be in Sevilla, you can refresh a little bit... More

The place is huge and there is a big fountain in the centre of the Plaza. It was built for the 1929 Expo. We went on a very hot day so could not walk outside for long. I took panorama view of the whole plaza and love it very much. Must not miss the brightly tiled sections - each one... More

As for the Alcazar Garden, this place has to be seen : It's a impressive memory of Spanish culture, both in the supremacy of the palace but also by the testimony of former colonies: the palace is sculptural, surrounded by canals and a central fountain. Four beautiful stairs with azulejos tiles can cross the canals. It's also possible to rent... More
