Royal Alcazar City Tour

Explore the Oldest Royal Palace of Europe

Seville Royal Alcázar Tour

Mon - Tue - Wed - Thu - Fri - Sat - Sun (Approximately 1h 30 min.)

The Royal Alcázar of Seville, declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, along with the Archive of the Indies and the Cathedral of Seville, is one of those places to keep in memory and in the retina, next to the stories – imaginary or not – that have been created in them, as in the series “Game of Thrones“, points such as the Prince’s Garden, the Courtyard of the Maidens, the Hall of the Admiral, the Royal Room or the Courtyard of the Monteria.

The origins of the Royal Alcazar of Seville date from the High Middle Ages, although some areas of Islamic art have been preserved, which are impressive for their delicacy. In any case, the Mudejar and Gothic styles predominate.

Later, Renaissance and Baroque elements were added. It was in the 14th century that King Pedro I – King Don Pedro – ordered the demolition of the three Almohad palace buildings in order to build a Mudejar-style palace attached to the Gothic style of Alfonso X, the Casa Real. A palace that already amazed King Ferdinand III “El Santo” and is one of the oldest in Europe.
Over the centuries, it has been the residence of the members of the Spanish royal family in Seville. Today it is still exclusively for royal use, except for tourist visits.

Accompanied by a guide, we will discover all the secrets and legends of the architectural complex and its lush gardens. We will walk through the different halls, courtyards and rooms of this impressive royal palace and discover some of its most beautiful corners, such as the famous Baths of María Padilla or the Pond of Mercury.

Corners full of secrets and legends that will be explained during the tour, which will end in the gardens of the Royal Alcazar to let the participants enjoy all their charms.

All Around Great Tour Carlos was a wonderful guide. He incorporated what we wanted to see into the itinerary. He was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. He even helped me purchase train tickets to Madrid for the next day. Rhonda and the white villages were beautiful!

Birthday Tour Carlos was a great guide. We wanted to go on a wine tasting as well and they handled and coordinated it quickly and we added that into our day. It started to rain while we were at lunch and he parked as close as possible so we did not have to walk in the rain. He made the whole day very easy and enjoyable. I even paid a bit extra to have them pick us up at our home which was great as well.

Do not miss this memorable day in Andalucia! We saw three unique towns in the region highlighting the stunning scenery and varied agriculture associated with each. Our guide was Guido who shared facts, history, and distinctive character associated with the region. He was informed, thoughtful, and helpful. At one point, Guido guided a person in our group to a store and interpreted in the process of replacing lost contacts which were originally from USA - an amazing feat. Our family of 8 unanimously recommend this tour and Guido, our guide!

Cattedrale di Siviglia e Torre Giralda Abbiamo visitato Siviglia in Ottobre. Città magnifica, e clima davvero invidiabile (30 gradi, praticamente estate).Abbiamo scoperto la Cattedrale e la Torre Giralda grazie all'assistenza di una guida privata, Damiana, che è stata impagabile. Preparata, appassionata, ed utilissima anche per altre informazioni generali che ci hanno aiutato a proseguire il viaggio nel migliore dei modi. Un viaggio ed una visita che ricorderemo con grandissimo piacere.
