    Al Raman ordered the construction of this fortified palace in 931 AD. The Alcazar comprises a series of palaces which are the most important example of civil architecture in Seville. In the interior, the outstanding palace grounds, gardens and servants quarters are spread over an area enclosed by walls on the south side of Sevilles Historic City Centre. Rather than an architectural unit, the Alcazar has an intimate atmosphere created by an intermingling of Muslim artistic elements with others from the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. The most striking contribution by Pedro I  was the reconstruction of the older parts of the Abbadi Alcazar and other early palaces.

    Alcazar palace is a part time residence of the Royal Family, and it is the oldest Royal Palace used in Europe. Noteworthy as it is it not mererly a singular palace but a series of palaces, the product of successive reforms that took place since the Arab occupation. Thus these grounds bring together a perfect symbiosis, a succession of architectural styles, from Islamic to Neoclassical, incorporating Mudejar elements, Gothic, Renaissance, Plateresque, Purist, Baroque and Rococo; all contributing to the magnificence of this landmark. They are present at its beautiful gardens, patios, rooms and tapestries.

    Alcazar – Inside Royal fortress are a lot of fascinating rooms, corridors and courtyards inside the Fortress. You'll get impressed since you join the palace from the Lion gate. Going straight we arrive to Hunting Courtyard and then to the Mudejar Palace, where there are some of the rooms I show you here (Courtyard of Maidservants, Ceiling Room of Charles V, Ambassadors Room, King's Bedroom, Dolls Courtyard, Ceiling Room of Philip II and Infante's Room) all of them in Mudejar style. The other parts are the Gothic Palace (where this tapestry is found), the Court Room, the China house and two more courtyards.
