Famous movie set location including Lawrence of Arabia & Game of Thrones
The Real Alcázar is situated near the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies in one of Andalusia’s most emblematic areas.
This plot was occupied from the 8th century BC. The citadel began to gain importance in the first half of the 12th century, when the space doubled due to the construction of a large palace.
During the caliphate of Abu Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansur, new buildings for the residence of the Caliph and his court were erected.
Some gardens have Renaissance statues. After damage by the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, that façade of the Palacio Gótico overlooking the Patio del Crucero was completely renovated in Baroque style.
