    ALCAZAR DE LOS REYES CRISTIANOS

    by zindara Updated May 29, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beatiful gardens to walk in, with fountains and pools. The palace-fortress of the Catholic Monarchs is good preserved building and has some beautiful roman mosaics on it.
    I am sorry I don't have any picture without me...

    Palacio Real - I believe there...

    Palacio Real - I believe there are 6 royal palaces throughout Spain. This one is as beautiful and is being renovated. The gardens are expansive and it has a museum as well.
    Check out the irrigation systems as it is all intricately designed to carry water to the gardens.

    After visiting the Mosaics Salon you will find a gallery that takes you to the stairs of the towers. Both towers offer great views of the Fortress, and the city.

    The gardens of the palace - were we spent some time in the shade - are lovely. This palace/fortress of the catholic monarchs was built in the 14th century.

    The gardens of the Alcazaar were wonderful, full of flowers, fountains, statuary and of course people. Don't let that deter you though as they are beautiful.
