What travelers say:

Alcazar means "fortress" in Arabic. There are buildings with this name in many Spanish cities.The first fortress on the site of the Seville Alcazar was built in 914 by the Arabs, later there was a residence of Arab rulers, which expanded and improved over time.During the Reconquista, in 1248, the Spaniards conquered Seville from the Arabs, and the Alcazar became the residence of King Ferdinand III.In 1364, under King Pedro I, a palace was built, which is considered one of the best examples of Mudejar architecture in Spain. Later, many kings of Spain rebuilt, completed and decorated the palaces of the Alcazar.On March 11, 1526, Charles V celebrated his wedding with Isabella of Portugal here. The Alcazar still houses the royal residence, where members of the modern royal family stay when they visit Seville.Now the Alcazar of Seville is a walled palace complex with courtyards, gardens and fountains. From the first palace built by the Arabs in the XI century, only the elements of the walls have survived to the present day.The Alcazar is located in the heart of Seville, next to the cathedral.
