Get a breath of fresh air in the meticulously manicured English gardens, featuring flowers, fruit trees, and water features.

Be sure to bring your camera for photos of architectural details representing styles from the Mudéjar to the 19th century. Hear about the famous monarch and poet al-Mutamid and what life was like in Spain in 1812.

The superb Alcazar tour

What an amazing place! Really beautiful. Our guide Rosa 'the red' was informative and fun and obviously enjoyed her job. Here we had the chance to enjoy and absorb this amazing place. Chillier on the inside than out in the plaza! Cathedral and Giralda also amazing, orange-tree filled central courtyard beautiful but Alcazar our favourite.

Many thanks to Rosa for being such an excellent guide. Fortunately, there was only two other English speaking people booked on the tour, so we could dive a little deeper in the history of the Palace with the luxury of extra time. Visiting early, beating the crowds, meant we were able to see so much more. Rosa's knowledge was extensive and her enthusiasm delightful.
