๐Ÿ’ƒSEVILLA PART II: Alcazar Palace…๐Ÿ’ƒ

Hello my lovely readers ๐Ÿ™‚ How’s everything going?

Today I want to share with you the continuation of my trip to Sevilla. On today’s blog post I want to share with you some panoramic pictures that I took and my visit to the Alcazar Palace.

I’m going to pick it up when I left it in my last blog post. That day at dawn we went to the Metropol Parasol. This modern waffle-like designed structure is in the centre of Sevilla and from the top you can get a beautiful panoramic view of the city. The price of the ticket is only 3โ‚ฌ, and they give you a drink and a postcard in return.

The next day the first thing that I visited was the Alcazar. The palace is a preeminent example of Moorish architecture in the Iberian Peninsula. This is my favourite kind of architecture so I was overwhelmed with happiness when I stepped inside. Dating from the 11th century, itโ€™s rightly a UNESCO world heritage site. Behind its walls, you can visit the Alcazarโ€™s exquisite rooms, iconic courtyards, and elegant and peaceful gardens.

The first thing I saw of the palace is this beautiful courtyard, that’s so magjestic and beautiful. I truly felt like a princess while walking around it.

Then I went to the different rooms of the palace and I was speechless when I was such a beautiful and intricate architecture.

After walking inside the palace for a long time, I visited the outdoor gardens, that were used as a setting for one of the worlds in Game of Thrones. They are also extremely beautiful and bigger than I was expecting.

Did you go inside the Alcazar? What was your favourite part?

  1. the Alcazar is my favorite building in Spain — although I didn’t make it to Granada for the Alhambra because I lost my wallet and got waylaid in Cordoba for a few extra days : (. Interestingly, while the original Alcazar in Seville was an Islamic fort from the 10th Century, the buildings that we see now were built for Catholic kings a few centuries later. The construction workers themselves were still Muslim, though, thus the heavy influence of Moorish architecture!
