Look at the royal chambers of Charles V colorfully executed in Moorish style, and the gazebo where the king had supper.
The Alcazar Palace has been a residence of the Spanish kings for 700 years. By order of Charles V, the Pavilion and royal appartments decorated with Flemish tapestries of the 16th and 18th centuries were arranged.
Charles liked the Alcazar Palace so much that chose this place for his wedding with Isabella of Portugal in 1526.
