Rosa was our tour guide from Amigos tour. Almost a private tour because we requested the tour in Spanish. We notice that she love what she do and she transmit that love to us. We enjoy the Real Alcazar more than the Alhambra in Granada....More

Amazing atmospheric stunning all apply. You can wander the rooms and immerse yourself in Moorish artistry. One of my favorite places in the world.

.We were warned to buy tickets at least 90 days in advance but couldn't. Fortunately, it was still a bit cool, temperature-wise so the place was not inundated with tourists. This place is a lesson in self-control and over the top at the same time....More

Go early as it gets crowded and hot in the afternoon. You need to book in advance as popular place. Lovely architecture and feeling just to tour round, but with so much history a guide is a great addition. You can easily spend half a...More

The building was amazing. Having visited Granada and Cordoba before arriving in Seville we were well steeped in Moorish history. This did not disappoint. You would be well advised to book tickets ahead. Whilst people who had pre-booked still had to queue - it was...More

Amazing palace and better to go in the afternoon. We went around 4pm. And we booked online so we skipped the line and that is the number one best tip for visiting this place. It’s summer , it’s scorching hot and you don’t want to...More

Must see while in Seville. Strongly suggest the audio guide for more information on construction/royalty/history. The gardens are beautiful and the interior decor (tile, architecture style) is just beautiful.

It was beautiful. We could not get over the amazing history inside these walls. The tile work and the gardens are unbelievable. Take your time walking around. There is a lot to see. We were there about 3 hours and enjoyed every minute

We booked ahead of our trip for the Monday which is free apart from a very small booking fee. I recommend you do this as the lines can be long! It was one of the highlights of our trip! It’s quite magical. Do not go...More

If you have the time, the Royal Quarter is worth a visit. It will cost a bit more, but you will be glad that you saw it. Buy your tickets online before you go to avoid long lines.

I really doubt it. The queue for tickets just to Alcázar is very long and slow - and it is much more restricted in numbers for Cuarto Real. So I imagine if Cuarto Real is sold out online, then your only hope is to find a... More
