Breathtaking views from alcazar. It is worth the walk but take the bus or taxi back. No bathrooms unless you pay to tour the castle.

Definitely worth the short walk from our hotel. Would recommend you include the tower entry but beware, you will have to walk 152 steps to get to the top. Also highly recommend the audio guide to complement the tour or otherwise you are just looking at stuff. The view from the tower is breathtaking, especially when the afternoon sun hits... More

This castle was worth the ticket price. The views from it are wonderful, especially from the top of the tower overlooking the city. Inside the rooms are all quite different and preserved nicely. Extra bonus was the wildlife (birds) around the castle. We watched a hawk fly around and land on the top of the tower, and the storks? Nesting... More

This beautiful castle left me in awe. Its majestic and constructed like a castle we read in fairy tales. The tower at the front entrance make you take notice of the grandeur of this amazing castle. The castle is well kept and the self guided tour is both interesting and educational. They also have 30 min guided tours included with... More

The most beautiful attraction in the city that combines Roman... Christian and Islamic heritage... The colours of the palace are amazing... And so is the design

A twelft-century fortification on top of a rock, the Alcázar is very well kept, with splendid rooms and an astonishing view of the surroundings. A must see.

You can see the moorish influence in the architecture. We should have rented the audio guide to better understand what we were seeing, but we did hear some of the explanations from nearby tour guides. Amazing history of rulers over hundreds of years.

This is one of the most beautiful castles in the world. It was quite crowded on the day we were there with school visits but it was still worth the visit. You can get some lovely pictures from various vantage points in the castle. You can choose to walk up the 100+ circular stair case to the top but I... More
