The Royal Palace of Seville

Front Cover
As one of Europe's oldest preserved royal palaces, the Royal Palace of Seville was built between 844 and 1350. While commissioned by a Christian king, the palace was designed and constructed by Moorish workers and is the finest example of Mudejar architecture in Spain.

After a brief historical survey, the author leads a tour of the palace, concluding in the Alcazar garden. The entertaining text and lush color photographs capture the exoticism of the architecture and decoration in Spain during this period.
