Royal Alcázar of Seville
Author: Julie Thompson | Last Updated: 24 Oct 2019
The Royal Alcázar of Seville is one of the city’s most emblematic structures alongside with the famous cathedral. The royal palace is a fantastic example of the Mudéjar style of architecture, which is so commonly found in the south of Spain. Granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 1987, the palace is one of three buildings in Seville to claim that title. There are several reasons why you should carve out some time in your trip to Seville to see the Alcázar. First and foremost for the breathtaking architecture. Inside the palace the visitor is treated to an array of intricate columns and courtyards, typical Andalusian tile-work, and several bodies of water. That’s not all though, the gardens of the palace stretch out in every direction, and are full of aromatic orange trees. There’s even a large maze and peacocks roaming around. Lastly, the Alcázar was used to film a few scenes set in the fictional land of ‘Dorne’, in the hugely popular TV series Game of Thrones.
