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.

Its beautiful, we were going home that day and stop by. We had the audioguide personally I stop listened to it because there is so much information that you just can't take all of it. Otherwise the visit and garden is good and beautiful.

The place is great. Entrance to ground floor only is cheaper. Sevilla card will provide you access to both floors. The place is worth a visit if you have time. If you stay for a very short time in Seville and you have to choose between Palacio de Lebrija and this one, I would advise to go to Palacio de... More

Took us ages to find but quite interesting. Shame the guides English wasn't better as it made it difficult to understand. Too much explanation of what you see and not enough background. Example first room they discovered frescoes under layers of plaster. The frescoes were interesting but only upon questioning later did she explain the room had been used as... More

There is not a lot about this in the tour books but it is well worth a visit, moorish arcitecture, interesting history, a good if slightly too long audio guide. Well worth the entrance fee.

The lower grounds of the House is for the visitors, while the upper floor is accessible only through a guide.... The guide was very welcoming and friendly. The upper floor of the palace is remarkable by its preservation of the Mudejar ceiling and since it is a working house for the Medina's it is well preserved. No photos were allowed... More

This Casa was built to rival the Alcazor. The tile mosaics are beautiful and everywhere. The two gardens are beautiful. A must see in Seville.

An interesting place to wander around with two distinct periods of occupation. Nothing at all to do with Pontius Pilate though which was a bit disappointing.

Another stunning palace in Sevilla. It is not the Alcazar, but this palace also has a lot of charm. It is the second best palace of Sevilla.

This was a really interesting building, every wall had a different pattern on it and the ceramic tiles were beautifully restored. You do get an audio guide and this allows you to understand the history of each room. I went on the tour of the rooms upstairs also. This was in Spanish but the lovely tour guide spoke with a...
