A stunning little sanctuary right in the centre of Seville. I was amazed that there were queues around the block even in early December!

I have visited both Alhambra in Granada and Alcazar at Seville. Both are magnificent. Alhambra is slightly better than Alcazar in my opinion. You better make sure to see both of them. Best places in Andalucia. Seville is very big and vibrant city. Alcazar has very nice and big gardens inside it. I realy liked walking inside enermous big gradens, seeing orange and lemon trees.

Definitely recommend audio guide. Was very interesting! Go on nice day and must see the gardens. Haven't seen the Alhambra but my daughter who had seen both said Alcazar was was her favorite. If you are in Sevilla, would not miss this!

Definitely don't miss this place! We spent hours wandering both inside and outside and everywhere you look is fantastic. The art, tiles, garden design, murals are all terrific and a sight to see - very impressive

This was a place I had always dreamed of visiting and it did not disappoint. The Moorish style palace spaces and gardens take you back to poetry and novels ....give yourself time to enjoy this.
