Alcazar of Seville
The Alcazar of Seville is a royal palace built by the Almohad dynasty in the 13th century. The palace is located in the city center of Seville, Spain, on top of a hill overlooking the Guadalquivir River. It was originally built as a fortress and later became the residence of Christian kings of Spain until 1570 when it was converted into an army barracks for Charles V's troops during his stay in Seville before he left for Germany to become Holy Roman Emperor.
In 1401, Ferdinand III founded there what would become one of Europe's most important universities: University School (now known as University School of Medicine). In 1506 Isabella I signed here her last will before departing from Spain for Aragon after being widowed by Philip II's death; this document was later used by Philip III when he tried unsuccessfully to claim power over Castile through his wife Anne (daughter-in-law) who had legal rights over its throne dueto her father being Juan II's brother Pedro de Castilla y Fajardo – althoughlegally speaking these could not be applied retroactively since they had been made long before those rights were established!
