The Reales Alcázares de Seville started out as a Moorish fort, but currently is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe today.

Originally built by the Almohades, each monarchy following has added to it in their own style of architecture or a copy of antiqued architecture, making it an interesting and unique establishment.

The Alcázar has eight main parts and is surrounded by a garden.

The Garden.

Not sure what room this was.  It was newer and had large artwork.

Los Baños de Doña María de Padrilla.

What a beautiful room to miss out on!  This part was in contruction during our time there.  Here's my fave image thanks to google images.
