Alcazar, Sevilla: 134 reviews and 307 photos

 
 

Reales Alcazares or simply the Alcazar is of course one of the must sees of Sevilla. It is an Arabic fortress that has been changed into a palace. Strangely enough it was not built by the Arab people, but by the christian conquerers who copied the Arab style. The Christian monarchs, Alfonso X and Pedro I employed Moorish craftsmen to build the Real Alcazar in the 14th century. This type of style is called "mudejar".
There are some beautiful patios in the Alcazar, you can find some of them in my Alcazar travelogue.
And don't forget to pay a visit to the magnificent gardens!
