Hello! Today I will be finishing up Seville by sharing pictures from The Royal Alcázar, a 10th century Moorish palace built for the governors of the local state. This is also the palace where Queen Isabel met with Christopher Columbus after his New World discoveries to review his voyage. The intricate detail of the palace is incredible in today’s standards, let alone hundreds of years ago.
