Alcazar Sevilla

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Almohades were the first to build a palace, which was called Al-Muwarak, on the site of the modern day Alcázar. The palace is one of the best remaining examples of mudéjar architecture. Subsequent monarchs have added their own additions to the Alcázar. The upper levels of the Alcázar are still used by the royal family as the official Seville residence and are administered by the Patrimonio Nacional.

Thank you Ijaz. I love the moorish architectur blooming under the caliphate of Cordoba 700 years ago. It was a golden time when moslems, christians and jews could live together in peace and harmony.
