Overview

Enhance your experience of the Alcázar of Seville with entry before normal opening hours and skip-the-line access. On this 1.5-hour tour, follow your local guide into parts of the palace not accessible to regular tour groups. Appreciate the mix of mudéjar, Renaissance, and 19th-century architecture as you pass through areas like the Patio of the Maidens, the Ambassador's Room, and the English gardens. Upgrade to include skip-the-line entry and a guided tour of Seville Cathedral—one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world—and access to UNESCO-listed landmark La Giralda.
  • Before-hours access to the Alcázar of Seville
  • Learn about the history of this important Seville landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Get to see areas of the compounds that most tour groups don't visit
  • Spend no waiting in line with skip-the-line access
  • Upgrade to include a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed Seville Cathedral and La Giralda
Find your way to the Alcázar of Seville to meet your tour group and guide before the palace is open to the general public.

This tour allows you to breeze in without waiting in the long queues that frequently form outside this important Seville landmark. 

Walk through the UNESCO World Heritage Site, stopping in areas that most tour groups don't get access to. View the Rooms of Charles V, the Patio of the Maidens, the Plaster Patio, the Hunting Patio, the Horse Shoe Arches, and the Ambassador's Room. Get a breath of fresh air in the meticulously manicured English gardens, featuring flowers, fruit trees, and water features.

Be sure to bring your camera for photos of architectural details representing styles from the Mudéjar to the 19th century. Hear about the famous monarch and poet al-Mutamid and what life was like in Spain in 1812. 

Your tour concludes after two hours of exploring this remarkable representation of Spanish history.

Upgrade: Seville Cathedral Skip-The-Line entry and Guided Tour 

Maximize your time in Seville by upgrading your tour to include skip-the-line entry and a guided tour of Seville Cathedral — the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. After exploring the Alcazar on a 1.5-hour tour, stroll to Seville Cathedral and discover the UNESCO-listed landmark alongside your guide.

Be amazed by the intricate interior décor of 80 chapels: admire prismatic stained glass, priceless masterpieces by Goya and Murillo, and the reputed remains of Christopher Columbus. Ascend to the summit of La Giralda —architectural evidence of the mosque that the cathedral replaced — and absorb spectacular city views.

After an hour with your guide, spend 30 minutes enjoying the cathedral independently before your Viator VIP experience concludes.

This early access tour was informative and interesting although I didn't think it covered enough areas of the Alcazar. It wasn't really early access,we lined up in a pre-booked line at the same time as others were purchasing tickets so this meant there were plenty of other people around at the time.

Our guide was Rosa, and she was an absolute delight, and was very thorough with her explanations. When visiting the Alcazar and the Cathedral, would highly recommend doing a tour, otherwise you miss a lot of the details about the architecture and the coexistence of three religions and how they are reflected in the architecture. Rosa delivers information in such an engaging way, and she gave us so many interesting and cools facts about the sites.

There is a break in the middle of the Alcazar and Cathedral for drinks, food and bathroom, however the tour does get a LITTLE bit tiring towards the end so be prepared to walk and stand a lot.

There was no such thing as early access. Just a separate line for tour groups. We actually got in later than general admission. Better to just get it directly from the website.
