Full description

Discover one of Spain’s most extraordinary buildings on a guided tour of the Alcazar in Seville. Meet your guide on the Plaza del Triunfo to skip the long lines to the building, started by the Cordoban governors of Seville in 913. Learn the history of the Alcazar, and how it expanded over its 11 centuries of existence. Enter the ornate complex to see the exquisite additions of the Almohads when they turned into a fortress in the 12th century. Travel through time as you hear tales of the Christian Fernando III, who moved into the Alcázar when he captured Seville in 1248. See architectural evidence of the Moorish Muslim rulers, government officials, court servants, and royal guard. Marvel at one of the most outstanding examples of Mudéjar architecture on the Iberian Peninsula.

Experience the palace and gardens with all your senses, from the sound of the fountains to the fragrance of flowers to the intricate Mudéjar plaster work and beams in the Patio del León.

really good informative tour, tour guide was excellent (I can't remember her name, sorry!). Beautiful gardens and palace, tour went at a good pace and she was very clear and friendly. Guided tour lasted around 1.30 hours but then you could spend as much free time as you liked in the entire grounds.

The tour was informative - you gained a good insight into this unique building complex with its beautiful architecture. I deducted a star because finding the tour booked online at the meeting point was a bit difficult. Many tours started there at the same time and it was very confusing.

We had an amazing tour guide! Unfortunately cannot remember her name but she was awesome! Since it was just the two of us she went at our pace and took the time to share everything with us making it more personable! The alcazar was just magnificent! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
