Real Alcazar of Seville Courtyard in Spain

One of the many remarkable man-made structures in Spain is the Real Alcazar of Seville Courtyard. Alcazar is a Spanish Arabic term for “room of the prince” or “royal house”. This royal palace in Seville was built by Moorish Muslim kings, and it best exemplifies the mudejar architectural style.

It is not only the oldest royal palace in Europe that is still being used up to this day, it is also one of the most beautiful. It is currently the official residence of the royal family while in Seville. In 1987, it became part of the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
