Alcázar is one of the most renowned set of complex buildings in the city of Seville, province of Andalusia of Spain. Real Alcázar, or translated as the Palace, played an immense role in the historical evolution of the city of Seville from the Arabic and Muslim expansion, late Middle Ages, the Renaissance, through to the modern times. Thus, so many parts of the palace are influenced by a mixture of cultural heritages from Islamic caligraphs, Catholic monarchs to French and Iberian artefacts with some Baroque architectures. The declaration of World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987 acknowledged this historical complex of structures as a preservation of cultures and civilizations in a harmonic whole, where all elements are balanced and maintained. Today, Alcázar de Sevilla is known all over the world for being the venue and set for some of the popular movies such as Lawrence of Arabia and Kingdom of Heaven, in addition to taking part in the fifth season of Game of Thrones as the Palace of Sunspear of the House of Dorne.
