Real Alcázar palace in Seville

Setting for the wedding between Charles V and Isabella of Portugal.

The Real Alcázar in Seville is a group of palaces surrounded by a wall. Peter the Cruel rebuilt the old Almohad building to establish a royal residence in the 14th century. It has contributions from all periods, although Mudejar and Renaissance styles are predominant.

The use of the Upper Palace, on the upper level of the Mudejar Palace, is administered by National Heritage. It includes: the foyer, built in the times of the Catholic Monarchs; the oratory of the Catholic Monarchs; the banquet all built during the reign of Philip II of Spain; the viewpoint of the Catholic Monarchs, influenced by Granada and built subsequent to 1492, the bedroom of Peter of Castile, which is one of the rooms from the 14th-century Mudejar palace; and the official or audience chamber. Visits to it are managed by the Board of Management for the Real Alcázar Palace of Seville.

The rest of the group of buildings, also managed by the Board of Management for the Real del Alcázar Palace of Seville, contain different areas, including: The Courtroom, The Admiral’s Room, Peter the Cruel’s Palace, the Catholic Monarchs’ Hall, The Hall of Ambassadors, the Las Doncellas Courtyard, the Royal Bedchamber, the Pasos Perdidos Ballroom, the Los Infantes Hall, The Prince’s Garden, The English Garden, Charles V Pavilion and the Marchena Gate.

The tour takes place around the Las Doncellas Courtyard, where official life took place, and the Las Muñecas Courtyard, reserved for private events.
