Palaces and gardens of the Alcazar of Seville
We will start with the Royal Alcazar, the oldest European Royal Palace still in use. A magic place comprised of several palaces and rooms, and graced by awe inspiring gardens, that represents a harmonious synthesis between Christian and Muslim culture.
The most emblematic place of the monument is the Mudejar Palace, ordered to be built by Pedro I the King; a Castilian monarch in love with the Islamic architecture. The Ambassador’s Hall will blow you away.
Likewise you will discover other places like the Gothic Palace or the ancient House of Trade. And of course we will stroll around the famous Gardens accompanied by colorful peacocks and the freshness given by majestic trees; a huge green space with Islamic reminiscences, renaissance confection and romantic soul.
Giralda and Cathedral of Seville
This imposing house of worship Gothic in style, was originally intended as a Muslim place of worship, hence, the Moorish influence, clearly visible at the adjacent Giralda tower. And was completed in the early 16th century as Catholic Temple.
Sits on 253,000 square feet of land that make it the the largest cathedral in the world to this very day.
But this awesome monument fulfills not only a religious function but also museum. Its giant five naves are riches in Christian iconography, emarkable works of art, stained glass and the tombs of famous historical figures, including Ferdinand III of Castille, Christopher Columbus and, his son, Diego.
And of course we will also talk about its past as the Great Mosque of Seville, for which we will rely on the remains that are still preserved, such as the symbolic and immortal tower of the Giralda.
