Experience living history on a guided tour of Royal Alcázar of Seville, the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe. Built primarily during the 1300s, this World Heritage–listed site is one of the country’s finest examples of Moorish architecture, featuring a myriad of exquisitely decorated rooms, lavish gardens, paved courtyards, and sparkling ponds. Originally used as a fort, the site was reconstructed and vastly expanded numerous times over the centuries. The upper levels of the palace are still the official Seville residence of Spain’s royal family. When you visit, be sure to check out the room where Christopher Columbus’ journey to the Americas was planned. Advanced tickets are available online. Try to time your trip for one of many musical concerts regularly held in the gardens.

No words to describe the beauty dess place and the richness of Arab culture in the region. Tickets must be purchased in advance not to be queued. If you want to visit the King's room, buy the tickets first. Long before. The only weak point of the visit to the room is that they do not speak of the hitory of the Moors; Speak only of the Spaniards after the reconquest of the region and occupation of the Alcazar.
This is an amazing place! Palace after connected Palace showing art decor and magnificent gardens. I can try to describe it and show pictures, but would not do it justice. This is one the places you must see while in Seville, Spain. It is so rich in history influenced by Muslim to Christianity. A UNESCO world heritage site, its something you must see. Just breathtaking.
Royal Alcázar is a dream like palace with obvious Muslim influence, the whole place is very big and beautiful, clearly an evidence of how wealthy the Spanish empire once was. The gardens are very beautiful and big much like the palace, even in the garden the slightest piece of wall or floor is very nicely decorated. The garden is also quite nice to escape the heat as there is a lot of shade and cool green areas.
