This palace was really worth the queue to get inside. Wonderful old building with good audio guides with lots of information about the history, I'd thoroughly recommend visiting.

Don't miss the Royal apartments (separate ticket). Sign up in advance online to reserve your spot and avoid the (very long) line.

They knew the word art, no doubt. One of the best palaces I have visited - it combines magnificence and simplicity. The beauty of the decorated rooms, the charm of the patios and finally, the fantastic gardens are all of them marvelous. We spent the whole morning there.

I'd actually recommend the Casa de Pilatos over this site, but this one is more convenient to get to. We were about to give up after seeing the huge lines, but paid for a guide and only waited for about 30 minutes. It's really a beautiful and historic building but, again, the Casa de Pilatos is a better bet.

The palace is intriguing with its various history, the gardens are extraordinary easy to spend a few hours here. Best to buy tickets online to avoid queues.

The visit to the Real Palace is a must go attraction. It is really, really nice and merits a visit of one or two hours. Nicely decorated, it is a blend of cultures and architectures. I strongly reccommend a guided visit such that explanations make the attraction even more interesting.

Had not realized the Real Alcazar would be so breathtaking. The architectural details of The Harem, the dome, the baths all worth a guided tour.

Haven't been to an alcazar yet, so off to Seville Alcazar Real we went. Informative and enjoyable, but enough to last a lifetime. Ticket queue took around 25 minutes. Inside --lots of rooms, many very beautiful (no furniture, but on offer were the many varied designs of ceramic tiles -- floors, walls, ceilings, and in some, doors). A room with... More
