Welcome to the Mosque and Alcazar! After meeting the guide at the Mosque, the tour will begin. The first part of the visit will be in the Orange Tree Courtyard of the Mosque, where you will discover the origin of this building.
During the visit inside the Temple, you will walk through the 4 different expansions that took place during the 8th-10th centuries. In one of them you will discover the Mihrab of the quibla wall, which is made of gold, mother-of-pearl, lapis lazuli and precious stones, the jewel in the crown of this building.
After visiting the Cathedral, it is time to begin the second part of the tour, with the Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos, a former 14th century palace created by Alfonso XI. Inside you will walk through its corridors that tell us the history of the kings who lived in this Alcazar, such as the Catholic Monarchs.
And the best way to finish is with the famous gardens of the Alcázar, full of fountains and flowers that characterise the Andalusian buildings.
