This picture is the iconic picture of the Real Alcazar which was a wonderful, Moorish adventure. Loved everything about this palace. I wouldn't suggest going in March as it was really cold.

Rosa our tour guide for Alcazar was fabulous translating from English to Spanish with no problems. Her explanation of Alcazar reconfirm everything I learned in Granada with Victor.

Very easy to book on alcazar website one day ahead and that way you skip the same day ticket line, which can be 30-60 minutes+, depending on day, and just a few dollars more.

I would skip the large group tours - they looked quite tedious, but definitely get the audio headsets or you won’t have any idea what you are seeing. I thought the complex was a little disjointed chronologically - felt like we were skipping from one historic period to another, but very interesting architecture and beautiful gardens. Maze was nice and we enjoyed a coffee on the terrace overlooking gardens, with peacocks roaming about.

The Real Alcazar is a must see destination in Seville and one can easily lose hours wondering the gardens and exploring the palace. Even in the heat, there are cool spots to enjoy the surroundings.

But buy your tickets online! The line in the heat can be hours long (& for good reason). All this can be skipped by buying tickets online, even the night before.

Wear decent shoes and bring water with you. Once inside, be prepared to wait while the big tour groups run past. Usually a little wait will allow for pictures without people!

The audio guide is also worth it. Lots of information and at your own pace.

Wonderful place to visit, even in bad weather! With a small museum inside also it's definitely worth a visit if you go to Seville (and if you're a game of thrones fan!!)
