Weekday vs Weekend

Weekdays: Weekdays, particularly from Monday to Friday, generally see fewer tourists compared to weekends. This leads to a more peaceful and relaxed visit, allowing you to explore the palace complex and its surroundings with greater ease and comfort. Alcazar Seville's gardens, such as the beautiful Parterre Garden and the tranquil Patio de la Montería, are often less crowded on weekdays. This creates a more tranquil setting, perfect for enjoying a leisurely stroll or finding a peaceful spot to relax.

Weekends: On weekends, especially Saturdays and Sundays, Alcazar Seville tends to attract a larger number of visitors, including both tourists and locals. This increased footfall can lead to longer queues at the entrance and a more crowded environment inside the palace complex. Due to the higher number of visitors, the wait times for entry and to access certain areas of the Alcazar, such as the rooms and gardens, may be longer on weekends.

How long should I spend at Alcazar Seville?

To fully appreciate the beauty and historical significance of Alcazar Seville, it's recommended to spend at least 2 to 3 hours exploring the palace complex, gardens, and courtyards. This timeframe allows you to immerse yourself in the intricate architecture, lavish interiors, and captivating gardens, including the stunning Palacio Mudéjar and the enchanting Garden of the Poets. 

However, if you have a keen interest in history and wish to delve deeper into the palace's rich heritage, you might want to allocate additional time. Plan your visit accordingly to ensure a rewarding experience at this remarkable UNESCO World Heritage site.
