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.

The groups to visit the upper floors are large; the rooms are small and the guide could not communicate well with most of us. The ground floor was interesting.

The staff here are unusually cold for Sevilla. And the English tour lady had an accent that made me wish the tour was over right away. I couldn't tell if it was affected or not but I don't care. You are constantly reminded that the family was/is really important (for no apparent reason).

i enjoyed the visit for the architecture and the design of the palace. The first floor grounds are lovely, and the guided audio tour makes it more interesting. Skip the paid tour of the second floor, as it is not much more than the usual furniture and paintings, with little of especial interest.

With imagination, you can appreciate as it was lived here, especially if you include the upstairs 'apartments'. These are furnished and decorated as at some unknown conglomeration of times. This section of the house is only available as part of a guided tour (regular times in English). This adds to the enjoyment of your visit, given the illuminating info' given.... More

This is a very impressive house (almost a palace) and gardens in the centre is Seville. Wandering around on your own you can appreciate it for itself. There are a range of styles as it has been added to over several centuries. The downstairs, moorish style rooms were most impressive. I believe these can be visited for no charge. We... More

It is not Pontius Pilate's house of course but the architecture is in the Roman style and the statues are ancient and beautiful. It is a challenge to find but worth a visit

Really lovely garden and courtyard and tiled rooms, and the biggest bougainvillea I've ever seen (hanging like a pink curtain of flowers), but the audio guide was a nightmare as it was too hard to follow... Way too much detailed information spoken very quickly... Less is more sometimes!

We went along because we'd not spotted the Tobacco Factory was closed at weekends but the house is a definite highlight. The entry gets you access to the ground floor to walk around, and a guided tour of the upper floor, which still has unrestored parts of the original 16th century murals. A bit out of the main centre it... More
