The next time you rewatch the scenes with the Water Gardens of Dorne, keep an eye out for the intricate tiles that make up the palaces or the beautiful hedgerows that line the gardens. You will get to observe the architecture of the palaces in great detail, where you can see the fantastic confluence of Christian and Mudéjar architecture.

You will enter the palace through the Puerta del León (Lion's Gate), which will lead you to the Mudéjar Palace built by King Pedro I. Don't miss out on the Palace of the Yeso and its Hall of Justice, as well as the Gothic Palace. Wander through the lovely Patio de las Doncellas, which literally translates to The Courtyard of the Maidens. You can see its beautiful tiled sockets, the delicate marble inlay, and impeccable fountain. Also, check out Patio de las Muñecas (Patio of the Dolls) with its fascinating arcs that have the faces of little girls or dolls inlaid at the beginning. This was presumably a domestic courtyard where the royal princes and princesses used to play. For Renaissance pieces, do take a look at the Francisco Niculoso Pisano’s admirable altar of tiles (1504). The Room of the Admiral is where you will find the pictorial altarpiece dedicated to the Virgin of the Navigators, another historical souvenir that is worth viewing.
It’s rare to visit a seat of ancient royalty that showcases the influences and blend of several cultures and people and remain impeccably preserved to this day. It’s even rarer that it also just so happens to be a shoot location for one of the biggest television shows in the world! For history and pop-culture fans alike, a visit to the Real Alcázar is sure to be a treat.
