19.30-22.00: Visit to the Alcázar

An exclusive night visit has been organised for the Conference participants, followed by a cocktail reception hosted by the University of Seville. The Alcázar of Seville is a royal palace, originally a Moorish fort. Subsequent monarchs have added their own additions to the Alcázar, despite this, it still offers some of the best surviving examples of Moorish architecture. The upper levels of the Alcázar are still used by the royal family as their official Seville residence.

Built in the 18th century, Seville's tobacco factory was the largest industrial building in the world at that time and it remained a tobacco factory until the 1950s. This beautiful building was the setting for the famous opera Carmen by Georges Bizet. This building houses the Rector offices and two university's faculties: the School of Literature & Philology and the School of Geography & History. This event is hosted by the University of Seville.
