Seville enchants

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 Utrera Castle is located on a natural hill. It consists of curtain walls with defensive towers at the corners and between walls. The core area within dates from before the 14th century. Over time, the walled area expanded to 18 hectares, encompassing the Castle and 38 towers.

The Tower of Gold is a 13th century defensive tower from which a thick chain extended to the other side of the river to cut off enemy ships.

The first phase of construction of the Metropol Parasol revealed visible remains of much of the Roman period, from Tiberius (circa 30 AD) to the 6th century, as well as an Islamic Almohad house from the 12th and 13th centuries.

The gate de La Macarena (in Arabic: Bab-al-Makrin), also known as Arco de la Macarena, is along with the Postigo del Aceite and the Puerta de Córdoba the only three city gates that remain today of those who had the walls of Seville. It is located on Resolana street, within San Gil area, which belongs to the district of Casco Antiguo of the town of Seville.

Located in Seville, the Arco del Postigo del Aceite (Arch of the Gate of the Oil) is the only one of the three existing gates in the old Arab wall. Its origin dates back to 1107, in the time of Ben Yusuf, although it was greatly reformed in the 16th century by Benvenuto Tortello. The wall ran through what is now the Plaza del Cabildo, which still has a small section of the wall.

Part of the Roman villa of Osset Iulia Constantia, specifically several walls that could have belonged to a storage structure next to a wall that was built in San Juan and that was a strategic control point of the trade between Híspalis and the Aljarafe, was discovered in this municipality during the works of the Seville metro.
