This is truly a hidden gem. It's the ideal place to wander around for a leisurely hour, whilst soaking in the history of the place. The gardens are very well mainted and the walk through the Alcazar is truly interesting (all with English signage).

First thing to note is that the entrance to the place is confusing. Where you see the black door with entrada written on it, it has an arrow pointing away from the entrance. You just need to walk in the entrance to the left of the sign and the doorway is on the left. Note it doesn't look like the... More

I was so disappointed! It was closed on Saturday evening ! If you are traveling from America. Check the schedule of all attractions in Europe. But, the view from outside the walls it was an incredible fortification.

This is not the largest Alcazar in Andalucia but it is certainly worth a visit. It has been well restored and has plenty of informative English language panels throughout the site. Very nice to see that the interior mosque is given its due credit and the Mihrab restored. Excellent value, especially if a pensioner, and relatively quiet.

Interesting place, full of history and fantastic views from the top. Wonderful flowers everywhere, including the jacaranda trees and the orange trees. Beautiful ceiling in the Arab Baths building

the Alcazar has many interesting features including the old Moorish bath complex. When we visited it was a haven of quietness with only a handful of other visitors. Well worth going to see. The only downside is we wanted to see the camera obscura but having climbed several sets of stair got to a desk manned by a totally uninterested... More

The ticket office is located in the Villavicencio Palace which was built on the site of the original Moorish palace in 1664. We were able to obtain the cheaper rate of just under 2 euros (for overs 60s) instead of 5 euros. The Baroque structure of the Palace houses a small, local museum. On the ground floor is a large...
