Interest of Monumental Seville Tour

The Reales Alcázares preserve 3 palaces and more than 7 hectares of gardens.

The enclosure is completely walled by sections of wall built at different times.

Home to different monarchs, nobles, governors and politicians, today the Reales Alcázares is considered the oldest Royal House in Europe still in use, with its more than 1000 years of age it is still the Royal Headquarters in Seville of the Spanish Monarchy.

The word Alcazar comes from the Arabic -al-Qaṣr- which means fortified castle or palace. In turn, -al-Qaṣr- is a deformation of the Latin word castrum or castra.

When Muslims settled in the Iberian Peninsula from the 8th century AD, they begin to build constructions for the defense and control of their new territories, one of them was the Alcazar.

To manage this new emirate of Al-Andalus, they needed various representatives of the Emir to govern the different regions. These rulers and of course the Emir had to live in buildings according to their category, so many of them chose these walled areas as their residences and royal seats.

The governor of Seville could probably choose to build a fortified area on the South of the city, the Alcazar, in the 10th century AD. Little by little, the new muslim dinasties were coming and all of them decided to modify, renovate or redecorate what preexisted before in the enclosure.

When Castilian monarchs conquered Sevilla rehabilitated Alcazar.

As a result of the constant adaptation of the spaces today we enjoy in the same enclosure, Gothic style, Mudejar decoration, Renaissance structures…

As for the Cathedral, it is one of the main attractions of the city, being in fact the most visited monument in Seville.

Millions of visitors a year admire what is the largest Gothic temple in existence and one of the largest Christian temples in the world.

This building began to be built at the beginning of the 15th century, on the site left by the demolition of a great temple, the great Aljama Mosque or Greater Mosque of Seville, built by the Muslims in the 12th century.

On the other hand, the heritage that the Cathedral of Seville treasures is infinite in value, possessing pieces by the greatest and best artists in history. This means that today the Cathedral has a collection that any institution, museum or gallery in the world would like to enjoy.
