“Alcazar.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Very interesting......good to just wander round and take in the many different aspects of the beautiful building.....that gardens as particularly beautiful and on a hot day.....you can sit under the trees......and just relax.....allow around 2 hrs for the visit.....and take a bottle of water to keep hydrated.

“Amazing Alcazar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

My first impressions weren't that great but as we explored further the rooms became more beautiful and we were saying "Wow" every few seconds. The gardens are nicest closest to the Alcazar itself, though lovely they probably don't compare to those of the Alhambra in Granada.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

A must see. Get an audio guide.Take time. Gardens wonderful but buildings amazing. Best in the brilliant sun light we were lucky enough to have. I prefer it to the Al hambra in Grenada.

“Beautiful gardens, amazing buildings/rooms (would prefer if they were furnished)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Visited in April 2014, amazing mix of different styles, steeped in history, fabulous gardens (laid back, relaxing tranquil). Get here early as there can be large queues, queues do move along nicely. Arriving early allows you to be out of the gardens during the mid-day sun.
I was a little disappointed as there was no furniture in the rooms. We did not visit the Royal suites.

“crowded”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Alcazar was just a sight for sore eyes, however it is visited by many so keep that in mind. futhermore, you need to consider that you will spend at least two hours in Alcazar, but the gardens are amazing!
