Spain: Alcázar of Seville

Yesterday I got two postcards from Spain.

One of them shows the Ambassadors Hall at Seville's Alcázar. The Alcázar of Seville was built as residence of Moorish Muslim kings. Today it is still the official residence of the Spanish kings if they are in Seville and is thus the oldest European royal palace still in use. The Alcázar of Seville is together with the Seville Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies since 1987 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


Stamps:
Definitives (three from set of five) (issued 19-01-2015)
EUROPA (issued 23-04-2013)


Thank You very much William!
