We love the shapes of the Real Alcazar of Seville, Spain.
When staying at Seville, it is a must to visit the amazing Real Alcazar.
The Royal Alcazar Palace in Seville is a centuries-old complex of beautiful buildings, magical courtyards and colourful gardens. Still used as the Seville residence for the Spanish royal family, it is the oldest continually-inhabited royal palace in Europe.
One of the most striking features of the Alcazar is the blend of architectural styles it brings together. This mixture speaks eloquently of the Moorish and Christian cultures that have shaped Seville – but there are many Renaissance and Gothic touches, too.
That is why you should make use of the shapes to compose your photography pieces. Do you like these pictures taken with an iPhone?
Must you buy ticket to the Real Alcazar in advance?
👉 buy tickets online if not you will have to endure the cold (in winter) to get into the palace. We went once in 8am and didn’t get it and decided to try 7:30am the next day.
👉 get a friend who can speak Spanish to help with the tickets. It is not very user-friendly for Non-spanish speaking tourists. (A reason why we didn’t get the tickets because we wasted ours when we booked wrongly)
👉 the queue snakes a long long way around the town. I brought the kids to explore the labyrinth streets of Seville city as we took turns to queue.
If you have no choice but to queue for tickets, then avoid Monday because it is free entry. In other words, queue is going to super long compared to other days!
The queue? It is definitely worth it.
