“Game of Thrones” will film some scenes for Spring 2015 episodes in the Royal Alcázar of Seville, one of the oldest palaces still in use in the world.



I took this photo during a visit. It shows the entrance to the Damsels’ Patio.

Built in the 11th and 12th centuries, and added onto in the 14th, the Seville Alcázar could be described as a mini-Alhambra, filled with Islamic, medieval, and mudéjar architecture. It belongs to the royal family of Spain, and they occasionally use it for official business.

Seville’s mayor hopes that when HBO shows the world what the city has to offer, tourists will come. I know they won’t be disappointed.

Every time I’m in Seville, I visit the Alcázar. Once, as I toured its halls and chambers, I realized I was completely lost. I was about to look at the floor plan, then I stopped. I was lost in one of the most gorgeous buildings in the world. I was in no hurry. What could be better than to continue wandering aimlessly and enjoying whatever delight I came upon next?

It doesn’t get any better than that. Come see for yourself.
