Alcázar, Seville

As our 2018 REEP McLAREN Scholars will be studying faith gardens during their Scholarship in Spain, we simply have to include a visit to the Alcázar in Seville. I visited here for the first time today during my research trip to Spain.

Mudéjar and Christian architectural styles are united in this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage-listed Alcázar palace. Originally a 10th century fort, the Alcázar was enlarged and redesigned over the centuries. The palace complex features several beautiful patios (courtyards) and gardens laid out in the Islamic char bagh style.
