Alcázar : Michelin's recommendations
It is from here that you will have the most beautiful view of the Cathedral.. The Alcázar forms part of the fortified 4000m long surrounding wall erected by the Almohades in the 12C, the remains of which are still visible in the streets. Entry to the Alcazar, located at the southeast corner of the surrounding wall, is through the city gate, a typical Almohade right-angled gateway. The watch towers, such as the Octagonal Tower, are typical of Almohade defensive structures. The same can be said of the keep and the 15C Ponce de Leon Tower. Within the precincts of the Alcazar, the mosque is a fine example of the spartan art of the early Almohades. The prayer room is covered by a delightful octagonal cupola. At the opposite end of the precincts, at the far end of the garden, are baths built in the 12C in the Roman style.
