It  was originally built as a Moorish fortress but as the years have passed, many monarchies made  changes and alterations to  it , leaving the Real Alcazar  with a distinctive blend of various architectural styles, from classical antiquity, Moorish and Mudejar (the mix of Christian and Moorish techniques) to Gothic and Renaissance,  reflecting its passage through history.  It was declared  in 1987 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, along with the Seville Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies.
