Seville, the oldest city in Spain, stands on two banks of the Guadalquivir River. One of the main attractions of Seville is the Alcazar Palace.
In the center of the Spanish city of Seville is a complex, Alcazar Palace. This is a series of palaces that were erected in different eras and surrounded by magnificent parks.
The ensemble is based on the royal residence of Pedro I, who ordered the builders to erect a palace on the site of an ancient Moorish castle. Now the Royal Fortress in Seville is one of the oldest palace complexes in the world.
Since 720, the Arab conquerors began to build palaces for rulers on the defeated lands to strengthen their own power. When Seville went under the wing of the Moorish dynasty of Almohad, the king’s residence began to be erected on the site of an ancient fortress.
The building has stood since the time of the Roman state. The main palace was erected during the reign of Al-Muhammad.
The Castile ruler Pedro I the Cruel ordered to build his own residence next to the Moorish palace in 1364. The king was very fond of Arab architecture and invited for the construction work of masters from the Arab families of Grenada and Toledo.
Therefore, during the construction of the Royal Palace, details were taken from the buildings of not only Seville but also Cordoba and Valencia.
Who Owns the Alcazar Seville? The Royal Palace in 1987 was included in the list of UNESCO assets. Several times are reflected in the structures of the architectural ensemble.
Despite the difficulties of buildings, they look holistically and harmoniously.
