If you are in Seville you have to visit the Royal Alcazar palace. But bring your passport if you want the retiree discount. We only took a photocopy and this didn't work. I don't recommend doing this as part of a combination tour: you won't get long enough to wander round the garden, or enjoy a relaxing beer in the... More

One of the most beautiful palaces to visit. The general entrance is 9.50 euros which worths every cent. The buildings and the decoration are very impressive and the gardens are offering some fresh and relaxation.

A must visit if you are in Seville, and try to book tickets online if you are not a fan of queuing for hours under the sun. We are GoT fans and wanted to have a glimpse of Dorne. We were not disappointed! This magnificent place, from its palaces to its gardens, it was simply break taking. The raised water... More

It is a great historical place. We had to wait for long time to enter because of a long queue. We hired an English speaking tour guide charging 6 euros per person. We were given audio s for information.

Such an impressive building, beautiful gardens and interesting history. We did not pre-purchase tickets, but the line went pretty quickly. After touring the castle, you can spend as much time as you want in the gardens or going back through the complex.

Must see! Tip: order a ticket online on beforehand to avoid the cue! We could also reserve a timeslot for the Carto Alto this way and they were absolutely worth the (small) additional fee.

The palace is fantastic, absolutely ornate in all way over a huge maze of buildings, halls, courtyards etc. The mix of styles, basically old Spanish Catholic superimposed over the original Arabic/Muslim palace, is amazing. The gardens are worth a visit in their own right too.

My daughter & I had been looking forward to this trip but unfortunately it was spoiled by the treatment we received from the cashiers. I asked for 2 tickets (1adult/1student). We showed student ID and driving licence as proof of age. The total amount was 11.50euros. I handed the cashier a 50euro note which I got from the bank earlier... More

Beautiful place with a lot of history. The weather was very hot, but we got to enjoy a morning at Alcazar, inside out. The gardens are beautiful, very nice walk. Buy tickets in advance, lines were very long.
