Full description

Explore Seville’s Alcázar on a guided tour of one of the oldest functioning palaces in Europe. See why this palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, how it blends different architectural types, and why it became the setting for Lawrence of Arabia and Game of Thrones.

Choose from either a small-group or private tour to suit the experience you're looking for.  Meet your guide in the Plaza del Triunfo, which offers great views of the Giralda. After using the priority entrance to enter the palace you will begin the tour at the Patio del León, the site of the original Moorish palace.

Hear about how Moorish and Christian styles were blended after the Reconquista to create a palace that was emblematic of Mudéjar architecture. Visit examples of newer post-Reconquista architecture, such as the Casa de la Contratación and chapel, before heading to the Palacio del Don Rey Pedro, a perfect example of Mudéjar architecture. Discover the Patio de las Doncellas and grand Ambassadors’ Salón as featured in Game of Thrones. Both incorporate intricate carved detailing and colorful Islamic-style tiling.

After this, take a look around the Gothic Palace with its royal tapestries and ornate tiling. Stroll around orange-tree-filled gardens at your own leisure after the tour. After your guide drops you in the gardens, take in the peacocks that live there, the smell of orange blossom, and the numerous tranquil water features.

Try the labyrinth maze and enjoy the quietness of the gardens that are unbelievably located in the middle of the city.

Great visit of the Alcazar, with lots of explanation from Miguel our local guide. The place is a must see in Sevilla. The interior of the palace is beautiful as well as the gardens. I was luck enough to have a private tour with my partner as there was no other pple on the tour. It was a pity however that there was no skip-the-line as indicated (due to Covid) and that the starting time was changed from 11am to 2pm the day before the tour.

The Guide was very sympathic and knew everything about the History of the Alcazar. Because of Covid-19 we were just 3 People which gave us time to have a little small talk with the guide while walking through this amazing Palace. The only negative thing is that because of Covid-19 you have be in movement permanently to keep the distance between the visitors. That makes it hard to make Photos and enjoy the whole atmosphere, but that's not the Guides fault :)
