A trip to Seville is not complete without exploring the history that contributed to the magnificent city that it is today! At the epicenter of this history is Alcazar of Seville, one of Spain’s most extraordinary and intricate buildings.

The royal palace was built by Castilian Christians for King Peter of Castile on the site of an Abbadid Muslim fortress. Over centuries, the palace was taken over and deeply influenced by various cultures, marking the site as an exquisite amalgamation of architectural beauty.

There are several ways to explore this historical landmark, each with their own benefits. Opt for an exclusive VIP experience, a general tour or an extended tour that includes a guided introduction to Seville Cathedral and La Giralda.

The general tour offers skip-the-line access with a local guide. Take the opportunity to wander through the royal gardens, taking in the sweet aroma of the flowers, learn about the various Almohad and Christian kings who once took residence in the palace and marvel at the intricate architecture. The tour is approximately 1,5-hours long and suitable for all persons.

The VIP tour, also 1,5-hours long, offers the same opportunity but with the exclusivity of a small group and the certain perks – such as drinks and snacks. The reduced group size makes the tour significantly intimate, with the added opportunity to ask questions and fully absorb the history.

For those that want to explore further than the palace grounds, the extended tour also includes a guided tour of the majestic Seville Cathedral and La Giralda (the cathedral’s bell tower). The tour totals 2,5-hours and is an opportunity not to be missed.

Seville’s Alcazar is a loved UNESCO World Heritage Site and paints the perfect picture of Islamic pasts, Christian roots and Jewish influence blending together. Alcazar is home to three palaces, royal chambers, centenary gardens and a chapel.

Please note that if you take the tour during the rainy season, it’s important to pack an umbrella to comfortably stroll around the grounds without getting wet.

    Fantastic guide at very easy pace We did the tour of the palace and cathedral, beating the huge queues and with the audio system made the whole experience very good. The guide was excellent and although we were on the English/Spanish tour it gave us a bit of time to wander whilst he spoke in Spanish.A great pace, never felt rushed and the extra you pay above the entrance fee was definitely worth it.

    A bit too quick for my taste Overall it was a fine experience. However, I found the pace of the tour a bit too quick. Also, I was expecting a deeper explanation of the history of the places, as opposed to only curious or funny details.
