Photographer's Note

The Alczar of Seville (Spanish "Reales Alczares de Sevilla" is a royal palace in Seville, Spain, originally a Moorish fort.

The Almohades were the first to build a palace, which was called Al-Muwarak, on the site of the modern day Alczar. The palace is one of the best remaining examples of mudjar architecture. Subsequent monarchs have added their own additions to the Alczar. The upper levels of the Alczar are still used by the royal family as the official Seville residence and are administered by the Patrimonio Nacional.
