Alcázar of Seville

The Alcázar, a royal palace originally developed by Moorish Muslim kings is an example of mudéjar architecture.It was developed during the 11th to 16th centuries. We got to tour the upper levels which is still used by the royal family as the official Seville residence. Queen Isabel met with Christopher Columbus here to plan his voyages. A painting commemorates the occasion.
