The Alcazar is a beautiful place to visit. The detailed mosaic work is lovely as are the gardens. We had a tour guide who told us great stories about the history, anecdotes about former royalty and answered many questions. The gardens are lovely with Orange trees, fountains and a water organ.

When teaching in Seville, I would go to the Palace gardens atleast once a week to meet friends or have a simple picnic lunch. You're surrounded by beautiful trees and exotic peacocks. There is much to explore on the grounds. You feel like you're inside history. Not a quick walk through kind of place, bring a lunch and relax. Take in the scenery and breathe.

Very close to hotel and almost walked by it and glad I didn't. A beautiful piece of Sevillian beauty and culture and the gardens are spectacular. Well worth a look.

The gardens were on a paper with Alhambra at Granada, so much to see and great coffee at the cafe. There were some interesting rooms and a great maze for the kids to get lost in.
