1º Rules and conditions
For requesting free visits to the Alcazar with prior booking, specifically for nursery schools, primary and secondary schools, colleges and educational institutions:
One of the Board of the Alcazar of Seville's most important objectives is to promote and spread knowledge about the compound of monuments under its management. This is a compound of extraordinary historical, artistic and cultural importance, not to mention the weight it carries today as a Royal Palace still in use, an extension of the Town Hall of Seville, and a World Heritage Site since 1987.
In order to promote knowledge, the Alcazar’s Ordinance for Regulating Fees for services and visits states that admission shall be free for students up to 13 years of age (13 is included), and, with a view to further promoting the educational community's access to knowledge about our Cultural Heritage, we have set up an Activity Unit, whose purpose, amongst others, is to organize advance booking visits for nursery, primary and secondary schools.
There is no time or itinerary limit for these visits.
The regulations require that all groups of more than 8 people and guided (they can be guided by an official guide or they can be guided by a teacher) will make the visit with radio guides. You can bring the radio guides with you or you can rent them here, the same day of your visit. The price is € 1 per radio guide.
2º Educational Material designed for nursery education
The Faculty of Geography and History at the University of Seville (Department of Art History Course "Andalusian Art in Early Childhood Education" from 2012 to 2013) has teamed up with the Board of Seville Alcazar to provide a set of innovative teaching materials for the educational community, aiming to make nursery school visits to the Seville Alcazar educational, fun and participative. You will find these materials here below. Covering everything from class preparation before the visit to different routes and stories, these teaching materials are designed to unlock the doors of Seville Alcazar for 3- to 5-year-old children and help them to discover one of the world's most interesting and complex monuments. Welcome!
