The Real Alcázar of Seville is a group of palatial buildings located in the city of Seville, the construction of which began in the High Middle Ages, where multiple styles are superimposed, from the Islamic art of its first inhabitants, the Mudejar and Gothic of the period after the conquest of the city by the Castilian troops to the Renaissance and Baroque of later reforms.
The Palace of the Princes of Orleans and Bourbon, located in the centre of Villamanrique de la Condesa, was built in the 16th century over an old mill house.
The Palace was renovated in the 19th century as a traditional Andalusian rural house with decorations with French influences due to the participation of French architects.
The Palace is divided into three large areas:
This is a multi-purpose complex designed by the architect Aurelio Gómez Millán in 1940, which has a wide range of uses (devotional, educational, funerary and recreational), originally conceived by Cardinal Pedro Segura Sáenz.
The Pilas Municipal Park opened in 1987 and has an area of 60,000 m2. It is the green lung of the town with more than 130 species of trees and bushes and an enormously varied landscape all year round. It has a unique structure. It was designed as an English garden with two large lakes of 500 and 600 m2, respectively, and a 110 metres long stream.
This palatial home belonged to the Marquises of La Garantía and is currently owned by Mr. Cárdenas Osuna and Mr. Jiménez Alfaro.
The façade is made of exposed brick, with an elegant 18th century doorway with the coat of arms of the marquisate at the centre. The doorway stands out for its beautiful proportions, design and exquisite workmanship.
The Granados Palace is a journey through time, through periods when life was lived with intensity, nobility and conquests.
Rescued from oblivion, this harmonious building, converted into a hotel, offers visitors the chance to recover their inner peace among brightly lit spaces, water fountains and ancient pomegranate and orange trees.
The complex of the Real Alcázar of Seville has its origin in the evolution that the ancient Roman Hispalis experienced during the High Middle Ages, when the town became known as Ixbilia.
