The Álcazar is the name of the Islamic palace of Seville, built by the Christian king Pedro I. The architectural style is known as Mudejar, a unique style that blends both cultures, only found in Spain.
Our students learned a lot about the history of the palace and its inhabitants from our guide, Fernando.
