Meet your guide in the Plaza del Triunfo, which offers great views of the Giralda. After using the priority entrance to enter the palace you will begin the tour at the Patio del León, the site of the original Moorish palace. Hear about how Moorish and Christian styles were blended after the Reconquista to create a palace that was emblematic of Mudéjar architecture.
Visit examples of newer post-Reconquista architecture, such as the Casa de la Contratación and chapel, before heading to the Palacio del Don Rey Pedro, a perfect example of Mudéjar architecture.
Discover the Patio de las Doncellas and grand Ambassadors’ Salón, as featured in Game of Thrones. Both incorporate intricate carved detailing and colorful Islamic-style tiling. After this, take a look around the Gothic Palace with its royal tapestries and ornate tiling.
Stroll around orange-tree-filled gardens at your own leisure after the tour. After your guide drops you in the gardens, take in the peacocks that live there, the smell of orange blossom and the numerous tranquil water features. Try the labyrinth maze and enjoy the quietness of the gardens that are unbelievably located in the middle of the city.
