1000 years of history

Witness to the history of Spain and particularly Seville, the Real Alcázar has crossed time from the tenth century to the present.

Its origins date back to the period of the Umayyad Caliphate of Cordoba. This dynasty reigned over southern Spain and experienced a strong development, marked by the construction of many wonders of Al-Andalus architecture: the Alcázars. The Palace of Seville is a perfect example of these typical military fortresses.

A multiplicity of influences

Built in 844 at the instigation of Amir Abd al-Rahman II, it underwent countless changes and adaptations over the following centuries. An exceptional building because of the plurality of cultures it embraces, the Palace of Seville bears the traces of past heritages. Works enlarged the place in the twelfth century during the Moorish period, but notable additions came 100 years later with the foundation of the first Gothic palace by Alfonso X. In the 14th century, the Real Alcázar was expanded with the Mudejar palace of Pedro I of Castile, which is distinguished by its Mediterranean inspiration.
