What to see in the Real Alcazar of Seville

The Real Alcazar of Seville was originally a Muslim defensive fortress and over time it was transformed into a palace with gardens. These are some of the areas that, in our opinion, you cannot miss on your visit to the Alcazar of Seville.

Patio del Yeso

Named after the main material used, the area of the Real Alcazar of Seville best represents the essence of the Almohad period. Its courtyard stands out for its three-module Almohad portico, with its central scalloped arch, lobed sides and profuse geometric and naturalistic decoration.

The Casa de la Contratación. 

Stays related to the management of trade with America. A historical jewel of Spain. Currently, only a few rooms are still standing, such as the Admiral's Room or Hall, now used as an auditorium and originally the Admiralty Court Room, where you can see various paintings of the nineteenth and twentieth century.

Mudejar Palace

Sumptuous halls with Andalusian decoration. Known as the Palace of Pedro I, the king who ordered its construction in the 14th century. It is considered one of the masterpieces of the Mudejar style. It is a cultural hybrid with Arab decorations and messages combined with Christian elements and motifs, typical of a time of transition of reconquered lands. The façade was elaborated by the best local craftsmen of Muslim influence, with the aim of recreating a mixed style.

Cuarto Real Alto

The official residence of the Kings and visitable with a special entrance. In the upper royal room are the official chamber, the bedroom of King Don Pedro, the viewpoint of the Catholic Monarchs and the oratory of the Catholic Monarchs, among others.
