What to expect?

Itinerary:

Stop At: Real Alcazar, Seville, Province of Seville, Andalucia

  • The Alcazar of Seville is a royal palace in Seville, originally a Moorish fort. The palace is renowned as one of the most beautiful in Spain. The upper levels of the Alcazar are still used by the royal family as the official Seville residence and are administered by the National Heritage. It is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, and it was registered in 1987 by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. It is the best example of Mudejar architectural style in Spain, although Islamic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements can be found as well.

  • Alcázar is a Spanish word, a synonym of a fortified castle. Actually, it comes from the Arabic word al-Qasr that means palace or fortress. The site was initially a Roman settlement, later used by the Visigoths. In 712 Seville was conquered by the Arabs, who transformed the building in a palace-fortress. When Fernando III of Castile regained the city in 1248, the Alcázar became the Royal Palace. His son, Alfonso X, initiated the first works and ordered the construction of the Gothic Palace.

Stop At: Barrio Santa Cruz, Seville, Province of Seville, Andalucia

  • The heart of Seville. It is impossible to resist the charm of this district with its winding alleys, its picturesque lime-washed houses, its delicate hardly visible flowery patios, and its small squares.

Stop At: Catedral de Sevilla, Seville, Province of Seville, Andalucia

  • Seville preserves an important monumental complex composed of the Cathedral, the Alcazar, and the Archivo de Indias, all declared by UNESCO to be "Humanity World Heritage Sites". Its gothic cathedral, built on an ancient Almohad mosque, is one of the largest in the world. Besides the religious building rises the “Giralda” the former minaret and the actual symbol of Seville. The majesty of its 5 naves and 25 chapels is the first thing that impresses the visitor that enters for the first time, in addition to the numerous works of art realized by some of the most important Spanish artists, sculptors, and painters.
