Gardens of the Royal Alcázar

28 reviews of Gardens of the Royal Alcázar


A bubble of peace and coolness

The gardens of Real Alcázar are a true bubble of peace and coolness, away from noise, activity and Seville heat.

Admission is free for students; therefore several times during our stay in Seville, we took a well-deserved rest there.

Of Moorish style, it is really relaxing with fresh cornflowers and multiple water fountains whose quiet noise contributes to the feeling of peace that this place exhibits.

There are better maintained areas, with roses, small shrubs carved with geometric shapes, and locations where there has been no attempt to tame nature, where palm, orange and other fruit trees coexist.

A place that transmits serenity

An excerpt from a story of "The Thousand and One Nights" is what the walk through the gardens of the Alcazar seemed to me.

Mixed with the green foliage of magnolias and palms, small brightly coloured laurels and scented leaves, lemon trees studded with green lemons and oranges ready to explode, the well-trimmed box hedges covered in part by pink petals, aromatic myrtle, lilies, acanthus and the imponderable rosemary among the great quantity and variety of plants and vines.

Several different fountains and a beautiful arbour contribute to the wonderful setting of the magnificent building facades, in a soft yellow colour smoothly intense yet at the same time pastel contrasting with the blue sky.

Scent of orange blossom

That the Alcázars’ in Seville are unique, majestic and simply impressive nobody doubts, but apart from that its gardens are characteristic of the "Thousand and One Nights".

The Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque influences have shaped landscaped gardens of great historic value, great beauty, reflecting the distinct gardening styles that were developed in each period.

Over time, these gardens have been enriched with exotic plants from all over the world, at present; over 170 species are catalogued in its 60,000 square meters.

Alcázar de Sevilla

This is a sunny afternoon in the middle of summer, looking through an underground aqueduct in the Alcázar de Sevilla, Spain.
