    The Attack of the Hungry Ducks

    Soon in your theatres ;-)

    Fondest memory: Those little hungry monsters could be find in the Reales Alcázares, where they life their complacent and unproductive lives waiting to be feed by the tourists. Though apparently cute creatures, they have some kind of "six sense" that allow them to localize with stunning precision the presence of any form of food in the areas surrounding the gardens of the Alcazar. Even a half chewed chewing gum would be tempting and appetizing aliment for those monsters.

    On the other hand, they are quite photogenic ;-)

    The Alcazar in Sevilla.

    Favorite thing: Visit the Alcazar.
    The gardens in Sevilla's Alcazar are like something out of Arabian Nights. They are a pure delight to slip into on a hot afternoon. Don't miss seeing the old water reservoir (called the vaulted baths).

    Favorite thing: 'Los Reales Alcazares', Abd Al Ramán III ordered in 913 the construction of the Alcazar, a fortified palace which later became the residence of various monarchs. Pedro I, 'the cruel', (1350 to 1369) made significant additions to the palace which is one of the most important examples of Mudéjar architecture in Seville. The numerous rooms, patios and halls vary in architectural styles from the Islamic to Neoclassic. The beautiful gardens and fountains are especially worth visiting.

    Favorite thing: When you visiting Sevilla, you absolutely must see Real Alcázar. After go outside this wonderful place, at the exit you'll have an spectacular view of 'Giralda's Tower' in the Sevilla's Downtown.

    Fondest memory: When I'm away from Sevilla I miss the wonderful Giralda and go to the top to see the general view of the city.

    Favorite thing: Visit the Real Alcazar, the royal palace.

    Fondest memory: The royal palace of Sevilla is a complex of buildings in different styles. Most beautiful are the arab quarters. But even more worth seeing are the lovely gardens with their palm trees, ponds, pavillions and flowers. More in the travelogue

    The Alcazar

    by DrewV Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Check out the Alcazar. This was the palace of the Moorish Kings of Sevilla before Pedro the Cruel (or Just, depending on whether he beheaded you or not) moved in. The palace is splendid, with fine arches, patio, fountains, and galleries. Sure, it pales next to the Alhambra, but it's still the second greatest Moorish palace in Spain. Also, the English audio tour is first-rate.

    Fondest memory: This place is a marvellous garden, just beside Giralda Tower. If you have 20 minutes and you want to relax yourself with a walk, take this way: you will love it!

    Fondest memory: Alcázar was built originally as a fort in 913. It has been adapted and enlarged in almost every century, and today it is more palace than fort. It is a beautiful place to explore.
