The Basics

The Alcázar of Seville ranks among the most-visited complexes on the planet and is included on many sightseeing tours in Seville (including Game of Thrones–themed tours). Aside from general admission tickets, which should be booked in advance, visitors have a few other options for touring the complex. It’s possible to book admission to the Royal Residence (Cuarto Real Alto) as part of an additional tour that often sells out early—it’s a good idea to book a guided tour of the complex or your entrance tickets ahead of time. Those with limited time to spend in the city can opt for a guided tour with skip-the-line access.

Vicente was our guide and he was fantastic! I would encourage anyone interested in the tour to ask for him as their guide. He had a great personality and a joy for what he was doing and very knowledgeable about everything that we were saying and of the history of it which was very important. Yay Vincente! Please give him a raise! Thank you Melvin MIXON

Alcazar of Seville Early Access English Tour with Optional Cathedral & Giralda
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was excellent. The only issue I had with the tour was we bought tickets for the Alcazar and the Cathedral. However the cathedral was closed because it was a holiday. I would have thought Viator would know what days they can’t sell tickets to attractions that are closed.

If you cruise, choose Viator for tours - small groups and less expensive.

Alcazar of Seville Skip-the-Line Guided Tour
Our guide, Maria, was a lot of fun. Very energetic and funny. I use a mobility walker and she easily carried it up and down steps for me. She was knowledgeable and was easy to understand. We are on a cruise and I always book my tours through Viator. I can book the same kind of tours the ship offers for less than half the price plus tour with about 10 people instead of a big bus full.

When to Get There

As one of Seville’s most popular attractions, the Alcázar can get busy. Plan to visit first thing in the morning to explore and photograph the grounds on your own before most tour buses start to arrive. To enjoy the royal palace gardens at their most beautiful, plan your visit on a sunny day. The complex is closed on Christmas, Good Friday, and during the first six days in January.

Beneath the Alcázar

Not all of the Alcázar’s beauty is situated above ground—below the Patio del Crucero are the Banos de Dona Maria de Padilla, the beautiful and almost eerie underground cisterns that collect rainwater from above. It's said that the tanks were named after a beauty so ruthlessly pursued by Pedro I (often called Pedro the Cruel), who ordered much of the Alcázar's construction, that she disfigured herself with burning oil and became a nun.
