The Alcazar of Seville

One of the great sites to visit while in Seville is the Alcazar of Seville, a royal palace built for King Peter of Castile. It was built by Castilian Christians of the site of a Muslim residential fortress destroyed after the Christian conquest of Seville. The Palace is a beautiful example of Mudejar architecture in the Iberian Peninsula. The upper levels of the Alcazar are still used by the royal family as their official residence while in Seville.

The integrate details in the tiles cover the walls, mesmerizing to the eye. Arched doorways open into lush gardens, with the smell of oranges in the air. and fountains with just a trickle of water conceals the sounds of the people talking in the nearby rooms. I highly recommend the audio guide to learn more about the palace its’ history.

While in Seville we have also done some Sherry tasking, and trip through the white villages, and an evening watching flamenco dancing.

We have been having a great time here in Seville, but I time here has come to an end. We are off to Malta next week. How has your week been?

Have you been to Malta, any tips or suggests for things to do or see. I would love to hear from you
