The Alcazar in Seville Spain

‘Sexy’ Seville in southern Spain is in, my humble opinion, one of the jewels of the Mediterranean countries.
It has culture oozing out of every building, colourful tapas bars with colourful patrons who live to the full, bull rings, festivals and a hot climate.
What is sometimes, understandably, overlooked, is it’s history. Like most of Southern Spain and in particular Andalusia it was occupied for some time by the Moors or Muslims from across the water. They built palaces or converted existing ones into forts. The Alcazar is one such palace originally built by the moors as a fort it, like the Alhambra in Granada has some beautiful buildings and carvings.
