Alcázar fortress of the Christian Monarchs


Description

This palace-fortress was the residence of the Catholic Monarchs for eight years. Its Mosaic Room in the form of a small chapel includes a large number of mosaics that have been preserved from the Plaza de la Corredera square. The rooms are organised around an interior courtyards with exotic flowers and orange and lemon trees. Crossing what is known as the Avenue of the Monarchs you reach the statues of the Catholic Monarchs and other kings who have links to the Alcázar fort. You can relax with a walk around the gardens, divided into three terraces at different levels, with fountains, pools and leafy trees and palm groves. Originally the complex was a royal residence, then a headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition, a civil prison, and finally a military prison.
