TheRoyal Alcázar

Sevilla's magnificent marriage of Christian and Mudéjar architecture. Originally built in 913 as a fort, it has been revamped many times over over 11 centuries. More recently, the Alcázar featured as a location for the Game of Thrones TV series.

It was Pedro I the Cruel who, in the 14th century, introduced the Mudejar decoration. Many rooms, magnificent halls and romantic courtyards are enclosed behind the walls. Vast gardens, with Moorish and Renaissance elements, surround the building.

Some Moorish elements still remain - the old minaret now the famous Giralda, and the Orange Tree Courtyard. 

Barrio Santa Cruz, Seville’s Jewish quarter… nature's air-conditioner. Squeeze into narrow alleyways built to keep out the hot Andalucia sun where temperatures can reach over 40c, 100f. Don't miss this historic barrio on your visit.
