Alkázar of Seville

The Royal Alkazár of Seville completely surpassed all my expectations.

The light floods into the palaces and gardens from above, orange blossom blooms and the gardens and soaked with a sweet, zingy aroma. It was magical!

The tiles in Seville are also to die for! There were so many in the Alkázar but you can see my last post for more! DSC_0559Blog Photo DSC_0599Blog PhotoI have to say I rather fancied this swimming pool for myself!DSC_0592Blog PhotoDSC_0560Blog PhotoAfter having a day wandering around our walled oasis in the middle of Seville it was time for another round of tapas with family and friends.

Make sure you put Seville on your bucket list and if you find yourself in Seville get to the Alkázar early! If you get there in the middle of the day you will queue for hours on end as they only let so many people in at once to ensure the Alkázar never gets overcrowded.

      The colours and scenery are abolsultey amazing! The alkázar was much calmer than the rest of the city but it’s still a delightful place to be.

    Those photos are just gorgeous! I visited Barcelona a while back (and LOVED it), but I never made it to Seville. One of my best friends studied there while she was in college and she always talked about how beautiful it was. Thanks for sharing these photos!
