Perhaps the most famous landmark in Seville is the Real Alcazar. This royal palace is a Unesco-listed complex. First developed as a fort in 913, it has been revamped many times over the 11 centuries of its existence. In the 11th Century it was known as Al-Muwarak (the Blessed). Then in the 14th century it became a Catholic landmark when King Pedro took over.

(It’s current fame is as the setting for “Dorn” to Game of Thrones fans.)
