The earliest known use of the site was for a Visigoth basilica. The Moors promptly destroyed it after arriving in Seville in By the 12th century, the Christian Reconquest was in full swing across the Iberian peninsula. Over the next few centuries, the ruling Christian monarchs were continuously renovating and adding onto the site, transforming it into the splendid royal residence we know today.

In the past few years, the Alcazar has received an unprecedented number of visitors. For that reason, lines can be quite long and involve standing out in the hot sun for an hour or more. Due to this increase in popularity, we highly recommend buying your tickets online in advance. This will help you avoid the long lines for buying day-of tickets. The website features many different price points and visit options, among them a general visit with an audio guide and a nighttime visit with dramatic performances.

If you have the time, we strongly suggest taking several hours to wander around the grounds and gardens, taking in the rich history and beautiful views. You can see the oldest remaining traces of the original Moorish structure in the two areas directly to your left as you enter the Alcazar. In fact, they were modeled after the arches in the famous mosque, but have been faded to white after so many centuries of sun exposure!

They were built in the 10th century, making them the oldest surviving touches of the Moorish palace-fortress. Established in , this single room was instrumental in the exploration of the New World.

Of the rooms, the most striking is the Salone de los Tapices , a vaulted hall with a series of vast tapestries. Beyond the Salone de los Tapices, the Patio del Crucero was originally the upper storey of a patio from the 12th-century Almohad palace.

With the start of the Spanish Reconquista in the 13th century, the palace was remodeled with Gothic and Romanesque elements. The 16th century saw major additions built in Renaissance style. Alongside these designs, Islamic decoration and ornamentation was widely used. The palace now presents a unique blend of styles. The palace is known for its tile decoration.

The two tile types used are majolica and arista tiles. In the arista technique, the green body is stamped and each tile segment has raised ridges. This technique produces tiles with transparent glazes that are not flat. The art of majolica ceramics was developed later in the 15thth centuries. The innovation made it possible to "paint" directly on ceramics covered with white opaque glazes.

Being a trade center, Seville had access to large scale production of these tiles. They were mainly of geometric design inspired by arabesque ornamentation.

In the 16th century, the Catholic Monarchs commissioned Nicola Pisano to make two majolica tile altarpieces in the palace. One still exists in the oratory of the royal apartments, the other one is missing. It features animals, cherubs and floral designs and gives the palace a bright tapestry look. The name, meaning "The Courtyard of the Maidens", is a reference to the apocryphal story that the Moors demanded an annual tribute of virgins from the Christian kingdoms of Iberia.

The lower storey of the Patio was built for King Peter of Castile and contains inscriptions that refer to Peter as a "sultan". Several reception rooms are arranged around a long rectangular reflecting pool in the center with sunken gardens on either side. For many years, the courtyard was entirely paved in marble with a fountain in the center. However, historical evidence showed the gardens and the reflecting pool were the original design and this arrangement was restored.

However, soon after this restoration, the courtyard was temporarily paved with marble once again at the request of movie director Ridley Scott. Scott used the paved courtyard as the set for the court of the King of Jerusalem in his movie Kingdom of Heaven. The courtyard arrangement was converted once more after the movie's production. The upper story of the Patio was an addition made by Charles V. Behind the pool is the Italian grotto gallery, which was constructed to transform the old Almohad wall into a loggia.

Is made from volcanic stones of different types that are reminiscent sea rocks. The view from the gallery into both sides of the gardens is spectacular.

The famous gardens of the Alcazar in Seville were depicted in many scenes of the Game of Thrones series. The city of Seville has been featured in other famous movies. The Alcazar has also been used to film historic movies including "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Kingdom of Heaven". You will have access to a lot of information about the shooting of the TV series, gossips and stories about the crew in Seville.

As Seville was established as the capital of Al-Andalus, the Almohade caliphs made the Alcazar their main residence.

Archaeological remains of the Al Mubarak palace are currently preserved under Patio de la Monteria. Several wall painting fragments were found that are now exhibited in the Palacio del Yeso. With the start of the Christian era in Seville, the Alcazar was converted into the residence of the Christian monarchs.

Changes were made to the constructions to fit the needs of the monarchs and the court life. Under the Catholic rulers Isabella and Fernando , the upperfloor was extended and transformed into the main residence of the monarchs. The palace was the birthplace of Infanta Maria Antonietta of Spain , daughter of Philip V of Spain and Elisabeth Farnese , when the king was in the city to oversee the signing of the Treaty of Seville which ended the Anglo-Spanish War During the five hundred years of construction, various architectural styles succeeded one another.

There are no remnants of the initial design, but the structure was probably refurbished with elements of Islamic ornamentation and patterns. Several major gardens were also built. With the start of the Spanish Reconquista in the 13th century, the palace was remodeled with Gothic and Romanesque elements. The 16th century saw major additions built in Renaissance style. Alongside these designs, Islamic decoration and ornamentation was widely used.

The palace now presents a unique blend of styles. The palace is known for its tile decoration. The two tile types used are majolica and arista tiles. In the arista technique, the green body is stamped and each tile segment has raised ridges. This technique produces tiles with transparent glazes that are not flat. The art of majolica ceramics was developed later in the 15thth centuries.

The innovation made it possible to "paint" directly on ceramics covered with white opaque glazes. Being a trade center, Seville had access to large scale production of these tiles. They were mainly of geometric design inspired by arabesque ornamentation. In the 16th century, the Catholic Monarchs commissioned Nicola Pisano to make two majolica tile altarpieces in the palace.
