We gave up trying to visit using the website opening times but found it closed with a notice on the gate. Area around it gave good views of the back of the cathedral.

Had a nice wander round, the gardens are lovely! All the signs and information are in English as well as Spanish, which was useful as only one of our party is bilingual. All in all very tranquil and some spectacular views from the towers. Just a 20 minute walk from the train station too. The camera obscura was closed on... More

Having stayed at this hotel earlier this week it has truly been the highlight of accommodation to date: my husband and I stayed in the Junior suite and it was just so beautiful, so stylish, yet always comfortable. The entire hotel surprises at every turn with eclectic artwork; but art that's accessible to appreciation and often with humour - check... More

Well worth a visit to see this well preserved glimpse of history. Experience air conditioning as an archetectural feature rather than an electrical installation. See the engineering of olive press, water supplies, hot baths etc. All very well presented with good "story boards" in Spanish and English. Combining a visit to Camera Obscura this could keep you engaged for 2-3... More

This is an alcazar that has been lovingly restored. The garden is small but lovely and there are great views from the tower. Don't expect the spectacular beauty of the Seville alcazar. This place is all about ambience, history and lack of crowds. There is no cafe in the fort, but plenty a short walk away.

Went here as a group of six on a slightly rainy afternoon. Lots to see and excellent explanation boards in English. We spent well over an hour looking around. Definitely worth the visit.

Andalusia is dotted with these things in various stages can of decay / repair. This is a good one. Well preserved moorish bath house, amazing olive press. Good views of the city and surrounds. Plenty of information

Take the tour, you won't regret it! It goes to show just how much history this area has to offer. Also how hundreds of years ago different races & cultures managed to sort out their differences 7 live in some sort of harmony!!

Nice place to visit, but maybe avoid very hot days. Only a cold drinks machine for refreshment. Intereting vist following the history and use of the Alcazar. Very good prices

A well explained tour of the 12th century fort with decent views of the local area from the round tower. Within the fort grounds are the old mosque, excavated Arabic water systems, bath houses and 18th century villa. Good value at €5 per person. Open all day.
