The Real Alcazar is a palace in Seville. It is an actual palace that still functions as one of residences of the King and Queen of Spain.
Just a few apartment gates away we found small, hidden courtyards with magnificent tiles and fountains. We had read that Seville was a beautiful city but we were continually surprised by beauty tucked into the corners. Unlike the Cathedral and the Alcazar (which I will write about soon these are considered ordinary.
We entered Sevilla late at night by cab and could not be driven to our apartment as it is in an area with streets so narrow that no cars are allowed (or possible). We were met by our wonderful Airbnb hosts Simbad and Marta who walked us across the Plaza de la Encarnacion to our shared apartment.
