Alfonso X the Wise

The most enlightened court in Europe

After the entry of King Ferdinand III into Seville and during the reign of the so-called “wise king” Alfonso X of Castile, the court was established in Seville and lived, under this sensitive, intellectual king, one of the most brilliant epochs of the European Middle Ages. Alfonso surrounded himself with philosophers, jurists, musicians, artists and mathematicians who gave his reign a creative drive that is remembered even today.

Tower of Don Fadrique

The legend of impossible love

Don Fadrique Álvarez of Toledo was the fourth Duke of Alba, Duke of Huéscar, Marquis of Coria and Knight Commander of the Order of Calatrava. During the reign of Philip II, he lived a story of impossible love for Doña María of Toledo that would end in his exile and ruin. The stones of the tower still weep for the tragic lovers.
