You can’t imagine what lies behind its walls ... a collection of palaces, fortresses and gardens that have long lived as witnesses of the city's history.
Everyone who has been here will be able to confirm it: the Royal Alcázar of Seville transports you to different eras, an experience you will never forget. You will without doubt get to know one of the most spectacular monumental complexes in the world.
The Royal Alcazar has been the place chosen by different civilisations, cultures, and dynasties as a centre of power: from the Almohads to the Christian kings, they have left their legacy here for history. A fantastic example is in the wonderful Mudejar Palace built by Pedro I.

You have to come to try it.
