Overview

Muslim ruler Abdul Rahman III had this Mudéjar-style palace built in 913. The variety of tiles, ornamental arches, crafted wooden ceilings and geometric designs are a wonderful demonstration of Arabic interior design. The most impressive rooms are the Patio de Banderas with the Giralda Tower behind it, the Patio de las Doncellas and the Patio de la Montería. The Salón de los Embajadores (Ambassadors' Hall) is especially ornate. The beautifully landscaped gardens and fountains outside it create a truly peaceful atmosphere. Social events, musical and theatrical performances are held here.
