The Royal Alcazars

Definitely, one of the most impressive monuments in Sevilla is the Alcazar. You can’t miss it when you visit the city.
This palace was built in the 10th century over a Roman Acropolis and a Visigothic basilica, and it is still the Royal Residence when the king and queen visit Sevilla.

The Gothic Palace was built during the kingdom of Alfonso III, The Wise. Outstanding is the contribution of King Pedro I “The Cruel” (1350-1369), who reconstructed parts of the Arab Alcazar in a unitary palace which constitutes the most successful civil Seville Mudéjar.  
During the 16th century new reforms are made, and the gardens are enriched with palm and orange trees, fountains and pavilions that provide freshness in the hot summer days.

The many rooms, patios and salons combine the most varied range of architectural styles and influences, from the Islamic to the Neoclassic. The beauty of its fountains and gardens is another of its highlighted attractions. 

The Royal Alcazars, due to its use as a Royal residence, have witnessed great historic events of all kinds. The wedding of Charles V with Isabel of Portugal was celebrated there, and very recently, there was the wedding of Infanta Elena with Don Jaime de Marichalar, Duke of Lugo.
