Alcazar of Seville Early Access with Optional Seville Cathedral

416 reviews
For a relatively crowd-free experience of the Alcázar of Seville, opt for an early-access tour. By entering the UNESCO World Heritage Site before it opens to the public, you avoid long lines and take crowd-free photos of the landmark’s gorgeous interior. Plus, visit parts of the complex that conventional tours don’t. Upgraded package includes a line-free exploration of Seville Cathedral and Giralda Tower.

This is a great church to visit for 2 reasons: 1. It’s a fabulous Baroque extravaganza of gold and ornate decoration. 2. If you come here before going to the Cathedral, then you can buy a combo ticket giving you entry to the church, the Cathedral and Giralda bell tower (€10) all in one. This gave us the huge advantage of skipping the long Cathedral lines and we could go straight in to the Cathedral. It’s only a 3 minute walk from here to the Cathedral. We spent a lot longer at this church than I’d expected. It turned out to be a real treasure and was unexpectedly stunning. We didn't get the audio-guide but it wasn't needed because there were a lot of English/Spanish information panels inside. The golden altar and richly decorated side chapels are obvious highlights. However I was more intrigued by the collection of life-size statues and sculptures around the altar. These are the figures that are carried through the streets in religious processions and are housed in the church throughout the year until their annual outings. The most popular one is the Holy Week donkey carrying Jesus into Jerusalem (on right hand side of the altar). They are carried on ‘pasos’ which are the enormous silver and gold platforms that you see on your left as you first walk in the church. They puzzled us at first and we weren’t sure what it could be used for. However they are the procession floats which are carried throughout the streets on feast days and festival. Statues of Mary or Jesus sit on top so that they seem to float through the streets. From Palm Sunday to Holy Saturday, there are over 60 official processions. Looking at these huge, solid pasos, you know they were going to be heavy but apparently several dozen men (costaleros) hide underneath to carry it. Lanterns and silver crosses go in front and musicians, a brass band or marching drums follow. What a spectacle.

Looking at this church from the outside, I could not imagine the beauty that it hides inside. It is simply stunning, the abundance of details in every corner that you look. Worth the visit, be sure to go.

Iglesia Colegial del Salvador is quite an elaborate church. It contains a large amount of gold, just as many other churches do, particularly in Spain. This church is also full of history. It used to be a mosque during the days Seville was under the occupation of the Moors. However when the Christians re-conquered their country, it was rebuilt as a Christian place of worship. It is second only to the Cathedral of Seville, in size, so it's a rather huge building. Worth a visit.

The Church of the Divine Savior was small but exquisite. If you’ve ever wondered what happened to all of the gold that was brought back from the New World, look no further than Spain’s churches! They are lavished with gold! We purchased a ticket that allowed admission to both this church and the Cathedral (8 Euros for two senior admissions). Don't miss this jewel in Sevilla.
