Alcázar Seville highlights

There’s plenty to explore and observe here, primarily Alcázar Seville's architecture. Here are a few highlights of the Alcázar that make it a historically significant monument.

alcazar seville tickets

Puerta del León

One of the first sights you’ll witness at the Alcázar is the Puerto del León, also known as the Lion’s Gate. Situated atop a tall, red-maroon wall, is a wide ceramic panel featuring a heraldic lion holding a cross. The Puerto del León serves as the main entrance into the Alcázar and leads into the Patio del Léon from where your tour begins.

alcazar seville tickets

Salón de Embajadores

The Hall of Ambassadors was used primarily for administrative purposes and receiving VIP guests by the likes of King Pedro. The principal architect behind this magnificent room is Diego Ruiz, a Seville craftsman from back in the late 1930s. The perfectly geometric pattern on the gilded ceiling is the highlight of this room, along with the intricately-detailed motifs and balconies that represent classic Moorish influence.

alcazar seville tickets
Patio de las Doncellas

Patio de las Doncellas

Also known as the Courtyard of Maidens, legend says that this area drew its name from the fact that the ancient Moors demanded 100 virgins from the Iberian Christians as a form of tribute. The Moors invested heavily into the maintenance of the courtyards; watch out for the immaculately-kept gardens, mudéjar-style architecture and symmetrical pool.

alcazar seville tickets

Palacio Mudéjar

Don Pedro -- commonly known as King Peter 1 -- while being a Christian ruler, employed Muslim architects and interior designs to build the Palacio Mudéjar (Palace of Peter 1). One of the most beautiful sections of the Alcázar, this palace is the ideal representation of Mudéjar art and heavy Moorish influence. Tip: Keep an eye out for the intricate patterns frequented across the walls and ceilings.

alcazar seville tickets

Royal Apartments

The Royal Apartments at the Alcázar are a testament to the history of the monument and the city itself. Comprising 11 rooms, these apartments currently serve as the private chambers of the royal family. They can be accessed through a private visit; on this tour, visitors get a rare glimpse of the elaborate furnishings, architecture and tapestries that have been influenced by decades of Moorish rule.
