dc.descriptionSalón de Embajadores (Hall of the Ambassadors); richly tiled and gilded wall with triple horseshoe arches; The Dar al-Imara (913-914), the original nucleus of the Alcázar, was built over the old basilica by the Umayyad ruler Abd al-Rahman III (reigned 912-961) and was enlarged in the 11th century by a series of fortified walls extending towards the west, which resulted in a new palace complex called Alcázar al-Mubarak, or El Bendito. After the Reconquista the Alcázar became the favourite residence of the monarchs of Castile. Peter (Pedro) the Cruel (reigned 1350-1369) substantially rebuilt (1364-1366) the Alcázar using artists from Toledo and Granada and Sevillian Mudéjar craftsmen. The upper levels of the Alcázar are still used by the royal family as the official Seville residence and are administered by the Patrimonio Nacional.
