Royal Alcázar of Seville
This is a grouping of palaces used since the Middle Ages as a residence for the members of the Spanish Royal Family.
Over the centuries, several different styles have been employed in its construction, ranging from Moorish, Múdejar and Gothic, and even some Baroque and nineteenth-century Isabelline Gothic.
Its marvellous gardens and courtyards, with beautiful mosaic tiling and plasterwork, as well as its halls, apartments and collections, make this complex one of the most important in the world. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987.
