I went to the Alcázar with a group and then went back alone to see the remaining areas. The complex is very large and although the tour was nice, we didn't climb to the towers and wall for a nice view of the Mezquita and...More

This palace and gardens is just beautiful. While nothing can rival the Alhambra, this is a magical place to visit.

It's worth spending a few hours here. The gardens are beautiful and it is a relaxing few hours. The price is right, 4.50€. Glad I did it.

Please take the time to wander about. The Roman mosaics just make you wonder the talent of the artisians.

The Dancing Fountains are in the gardens of the "Alcazar de los Reyes" and are in the evening (after dark). The time depends on the time of year because it needs the sun to be down so that the waters can be illuminated. More... More
