Seville Real Alcazar will never fail to enchant you. From its roof to the walls to the ground and to the gardens, the palace is magnificent. The tile works, the designs, the architectural delicateness of arches and carvings will blow your mind away. The rooms are even more stunning than you expected. Without trying hard, everything here will awaken your curiosity.
However, if you want to enjoy the place in its serene beauty, buy your ticket online. Be the first in line in the morning to avoid the long queue and the scorching summer sun.
Seville Real Alcazar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
And it’s not very hard to understand why this is both a cultural and architectural gem.
It’s not just an interesting palace with intriguing history but its interior is pretty amazing!
See these ancient stairs with really cool tile designs on the side wall?
How about these mind-blowing arches covered in great patterns?
And oh, the hallways are unbelievably remarkable, too!
Don’t just look up but also look up.
But also look sideways.
Look at these artsy tiled floors.
Who doesn’t be awed at this huge and spacious room full of incredible art?
The doors are photogenic, too. 😉
Thou shall not forget to go around The Courtyard of the Maidens.
On the second floor, don’t miss the Museum of Ceramics.
There are quiet rooms, too, where you can sit and be surrounding by ancient art works.
When you’re done inside, head on to the gardens.
It’s green and there are a lot of shades.
And ponds, too.
Seville Real Alcazar is still the official residence when the Royals are in the city.
That’s why not all rooms here on the second floor are open to the public.
I have visited four Real Alcazar in Spain: Madrid, Toledo, Segovia, Sevilla.
But this one is the best Real Alcazar.

WHERE TO STAY IN SEVILLA
I stayed at Oasis Backpackers Palace Hostel, one of the best hostels I’ve ever been to. It’s a fun hostel with a rooftop overlooking part of the city – and a jacuzzi! The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff are extra nice, too. Read my review here.
