After Seville, a real letdown. The walls are bare and the gardens small... you can only walk on part of the ramparts.

Amazing history and beautiful restoration of a great historical place. Go at 10 am or 5pm to take advantage of a free English tour. Have a walk around the grounds to take full view of the different sides of the castle

The parliament of this autonomous region is placed here. This is a former palace where the so called Catholic King and Queen lived at the time they paid Columbus to make his trip to the Americas

Like all Muslim buildings, la Aljaferia is gorgeous. It cost 5 euros to get in and was not full of tourists. The gardens amazing. Small enough to be seen in an hour. We found it hard to find parking around.

By far the best of the 'monuments' - lovely building, great internal garden and the information provided is very good.

This beautiful Palace seems to be the smaller sister of the famous Alhambra in Granada. When you wonder around you get from one beautiful decorated room to the other. Especially some of the ceilings have beautiful decorations The Palace is a short walk from the center (20 min's) and when you I have to choose between the "Pilar" church and... More

The palace is somewhat outside the centre, but worthwhile the 20 min walk (in 32 degrees). Beautiful architecture, impressive wooden ceilings. Harmonious.

First off, I fully agree to get those most out of this place, you should go on a guided tour. If you are not, then there are English pamphlets in the major areas for you to read (it's a bit dark in some of the rooms) about what you are seeing. I found the place extremely interesting and a welcome... More
