The Royal Alcázar of Seville, which received more than two million visitors last year, is introducing a nominative ticket system to avoid reselling tickets and long queues.
The new ticketing system aims to stamp out the resale of tickets by some companies who acquire a large number of tickets and then resell them above the official price, which is seven euros.
Tourism Councillor, Antonio Muñoz, expressed his hope that with the new model, which will be launched in spring, the long queues will become a thing of the past and the entrance to the palace will be “more orderly and less stressful”.
A ticket office, which will be operational in the coming months, is to be built in the Patio de Banderas to change the model of tickets sales, said the councillor and the director of the Royal Alcázar de Seville, Isabel Rorríguez, added that 2020 would be “a turning point” for the palace.
For the first time, in 2019, the Alcázar welcomed more than two million visitors, with 60% of ticket sales made through the Alcázar’s website, which is the only authorised sales channel.
