Construction of this palace began in 1492. Today, part of the palace is a museum and is open to the public. There is a separate wing where the present Duchess of Medinaceli lives with her descendants and family. The palace has many gardens, patios, fountains, and salons. The patios contain many Roman statues. Everywhere on the first floor one will find Roman mosaic floors. The walls are covered with beautiful ceramic tile in many different Mudejar styles.

A special Sevillan mix of christianism and islam, is this 17th century house, build by Marques Tarifa. This is a great art house, where the actual owners still live in. The outside view is nothing special, but the inside view of the building, with the large patio and columns, the great corridors, lots of great art pieces, can procure you... More

This house has it all...architecture, gardens, details, Moorish, Christian, roman, Greek art. It is a magnificent, still functioning house, that hosts this beautiful museum. It holds this name due to its Roman art influence. Get the guided tour for a better understanding of the inside-upper floor rooms.

It's a wonderful place ! It's really worth it ! I can't remember exactly but there is a moment, on wednesday, in the afternoon, where it's free for residents of the EU. It's a gateaway for a great timelapse as you have all the architecture in one place. Really good !

We had read that this was free on some of the guide books on Tuesdays but this is not correct - only on Wednesdays pm, you have to show EU ID - EHIC card will do. Usually they charge 8 euros each which for a family of 4 is expensive. We spent about 30 minutes there as it was very... More

After visiting alcázar and Alhambra (granada) casa de pilatos was a bit disappointing. We had a too quick tour in the upper floor and then time too see the rest. Nevertheless it was a nice experience.

It's hard to be popular amongst such highlights as Alcazar or Giralda nearby. Nevertheless, it is worth a detour if you liked the palace or if you want to have a "trailer" of Alcazar. Audioguide is included in the price and although lenghty, it is interesting.

Other than a specific painting of a man breastfeeding an infant, the Casa is not so special. It's beautiful, but seems like a watered-down version of the Reales Alcazares. Would not recommend, even if you loved the Reales Alcazares.

If have the chance to come to this palace, make sure you do the english guided tour as you will have access to the second floor - the best part for sure! The palace is well looked after and the story is very interesting. Recommended!
