The Spanish architecture, the history, the courtyards (which was a great surprise)...Just the essence infused into this beautiful building... Better than what I could have imagined! Visiting Seville - I'll strongly advise to visit Real Alcazar (one of the oldest European Royal Palaces) & the Seville Cathedral (the world's largest Gothic Cathedral!).
On entering the palace, there is a security checkpoint; as well as a souvenir shop.

Our trip which was pre booked on line was very poor. Late to start- took 45 mins to get organised and switched guides twice. The audio equipment packed up halfway through. Had no time to see the Gardens of Alcázar . All together badly organised unprofessional and a waste of time. I wished we had precooked our trip directly (essential to miss queuing ) and taken the audio guides at our leisure.
Our previous days trip with Heart of Seville free walks was so much more fun and was a great intro to the wonderfull sites of Seville

We booked in advance which is advisable. The gardens are a pleasant oasis in the city. While the building is quite nice it does not match up to the Alhambra in Granada

If in Seville, you must see the Cathedral and the Alcazar. Enjoy the mix of Moorish and Spanish architecture. Getting in, even with a pre-booking can be a little chaotic. The e-ticket did not render well on our phones, and we ended up paying twice for audio tour equipment. Once in though, there is plenty of space for a leisurely exploration of the palace and gardens.

Absolutely stunning architecture and wonderful gardens make this a must see in Seville. Took a group of high school students and they enjoyed every minute.
