  • I will admit that this was my first Alcazar visit, so it really does have a special place in my tourist heart. The grounds are lovely, the stories enchanting. I was amazed to find the early art and qu...  more »
  • People have different opinions, but for us the Alcázar was a very pleasant place and Yes I remember with more warmth than Seville, though, it is clear that you cannot compare in scale etc. you do not need to purchase tickets in advance. I went for tickets the day before, than surprised the guard, he could not understand "Mañana" take a ticket. In the morning, we went to the opening, there was almost no people, walked in alone, later nabezhal the people. Coolness, singing birds, water PURLs, easy to breathe, aromas. Fotografiruesh'sja, prisazhivaesh'sja on the bench and imagine life in a while ... Leave the gardens. And here's the Palace itself was not impressed, it's fans. Can not really comment to the site, but all sites have toilets. Remember this place as a small but very pretty.

  • Very beautiful place, more pleasant impression Park part of the complex, as more well-groomed. Unfortunately, not all open visits the building and only one tower and part of the Interior.
