“Wonderful Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This was an amazing experience with so many different architectural influences. Defiantely worth a vist. However, if you are using the audioguide (English) it doesn't alway flow as per the guide. Be patient.

“Must see”

Beautiful afternoon walk, carry a snack and sit and eat in the gardens after a stroll through the palace. Definitely worth the 10euro

“Must visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This was interesting to see. The inside was interesting and the history behind it was very cool to learn. I went with a tour guide, which is how I recommend seeing the Alcazar so you don't miss something. We stayed maybe 1/2 hour, and that seemed to be plenty long enough.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Not on the same scale as the Alhambra in Granada, but still phenomenally impressive, the Alcazar in Sevilla is a must-see. Be sure to get there early before the heat of the day kicks in - we arrived at the 9:30 opening time and were very pleased to avoid both the crowds and stifling heat that arrive shortly thereafter.

There are many many rooms to explore as well as extensive gardens. Our favourite room was the tapestry room, which is very impressive.

Currently priced at 8.5 euros for adults.

“A Must Do in Seville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Definitely worth at least a couple of hours of your time if visiting Seville, with a recent #14 ranking by TripAdvisor of all world sights. We got there close to opening time on a Sunday, and there was still a 30-minute line to get in, under plenty of sun. Leave yourself plenty of time to meander through the expansive gardens, which are beautiful. The audiotour works well and is worth the rental fee.
