The gardens of the Real Alcázar Palace make up one of the great palace sites of the Spanish crown, and possibly the oldest. They are the most original representation of a truly Hispanic style – the Mudejar – a Muslim artistic expression adapted to the Christian World.
From their Moorish origins, they underwent continual transformations, especially during the Renaissance period and the reign of Philip III. The results are seen in the delicate pavilion of Charles V in the Alcoba vegetable garden, the wonderful Grutesco Gallery and many gardens, such as La Danza, Las Damas, Las Galeras and El Rústico. The materials used, such as tiles, and many features, water channels, fountains, water spouts, etc. give them with a special Moorish character.
