“certainly a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

spent 3.5 hours here & needed every minute of it. audioguide well nigh essential.
take care to go upstairs first, separate ticket required, as it closes earlier than the rest, or at least it does in winter.
need to ensure complete coverage, which requires a litle to-ing & fro-ing.

“Great Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

AMAZING gardens, even in March...we got a bit distracted (and lost) outside and didn't really have much time to look around inside before closing. Definitely allow PLENTY of time! Oh, and the Peacock Mallard pair don't like Spanish girls!

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We loved our visit here and sent the morning wandering through the Palace but it was the gardens that we loved most. Cost 8E each to get in but I was told that if you are pensionable age and take your passport for proof, you can get in for 2E. Try to get there early and avoid the crowds. We noticed that by 11am it was getting quite busy which can detract from the natural peace and serenity that this place exudes. There is a cafe where you can grab a coffee and a snack and a gift shop, both of which are reasonably priced.

“Beautiful gardens”

The Alcazar has beautiful gardens, fountains and pools, it was lovely to have a wander around in the shady areas to get out of the sun. Very peaceful place.

“Beautiful palace and gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Impressive, both inside and out. If it is nice weather make sure to take your time and hang out in the gardens. Good value and I would recommend getting the audio guide
