"The Alhambra of Granada could..." Sevilla Favorite Tip by Pegasus74

Sevilla General: 231 reviews and 298 photos

Favorite thing: <font face=verdana>The Alhambra of Granada could apparently have inspired the <font color='008FFF'>Reales Alcazares</font>. Separated from the cathedral by the epicenter of the city?s attractions - <font color='008FFF'>Plaza del Triunfo</font>, the once fortress later transformed into palace compound includes shady and interconnected gardens partitioned by arched Moorish walls. Part of which is the <font color='008FFF'>Salon de Embajadores</font> where Ferdinand and Isabella received Columbus on his return trip from America. The beautiful arches that form the doorways along three of its walls, with Arabic characters ?only God conquers? appearing above the main entrance, will absolutely be captivating to your eyes as were mine.
