The Alcazar of Seville is a royal palace in Seville, originally a Moorish fort. The palace is renowned as one of the most beatiful in Spain. The upper levels of the Alcazar are still used by the royal family as the official Seville residence and are administered by the National Heritage. It is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, and it was registered in 1987 by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. It is the best example of Mudejar architectural style in Spain, although Islamic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements can be found as well. Alcázar is a Spanish word, synonym of fortified castle. Actually, it comes from the Arabic word al qasr that means palace or fortress. The site was initially a Roman settlement, later used by the Visigoths. In 712 Seville was conquered by the Arabs, who transformed the building in a palace-fortress. When Fernando III of Castile regained the city in 1248, the Alcázar became the Royal Palace. His son, Alfonso X, initiated the first works and ordered the construction of the Gothic Palace.
