Seville- Seville Alcazar and Gardens

The Seville Alcazar on Plaza del Triunfo is a palace that was built by the Moors, then taken over and remodeled by the Spanish.  It was here that Queen Isabella met Christopher Columbus, and is still an official royal residence.

The palace itself was beautiful.  Its interior walls were decorated with finely-crafted geometric shaped and Arabic calligraphy.  There were also exquisite courtyards and tranquil pools of water.  Just the kind of place I'd like to live!

The Alcazar Gardens were even better!  Its trees, flowers, fountains, and finely sculpted hedges combined to create a magical space.  It was the perfect place to cool down on a hot day in Seville!
