Royal Alcazars of Seville
The Alcazar of Seville (also known as Real Alcazar) is a royal palace located in the heart of Seville, in the southern region of Andalusia, Spain.
It was originally built as a fortress in the 10th century by the Muslim rulers of Andalusia, and later expanded and renovated by subsequent Muslim and Christian rulers.
The Alcazar of Seville is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most important examples of Mudéjar architecture in Spain. It is renowned for its exquisite tilework, intricate carvings, stunning gardens, and ornate courtyards. Some of the most notable features of the Alcazar include the Patio de las Doncellas (Courtyard of the Maidens), the Sala de los Reyes (Hall of the Kings), the Baths of Lady María de Padilla, and the gardens of the Alcazar, which are a blend of Islamic and Renaissance styles. The Alcazar is still used today as a royal palace by the Spanish royal family when they visit Seville.
