The Royal Palace of Seville, called the Alcazar of Seville and popularly known to GOT fans as the Dorne Kingdom is one of the most interesting and picturesque sites to visit when in Seville. This imposing palace has a cultural history ranging from Moorish, Renaissance, Mudejar and Gothic Architecture which is intriguing. Initially a Roman settlement, the Alcazar was conquered by the Arabs and converted into a fortress which later under the Spanish reign was turned into a Gothic palace. The Mudejar palace was added to the building in 1364, hence making this palace an architectural marvel. The same can be seen through the stunning gold ceilings, hand painted tiles, water fountains and manicured gardens.

The symmetrical courtyard with a central water body and blooming seasonal flowers gets closest to what you can imagine of a Dorne Kingdom

Getting into the palace can be a task because of the long queues and the scorching heat of Seville.
