The Pilato palace is a hidden gem, definitely worth a visit. Similar to the Alcazar but on a smaller scale and minus the crowds. Love the Mudejar architecture and the gardens. Taken on a tour or the upper level by Flor who was a charming tour guide.

Beautifully restored and although the top floor is guided tours only(we didn't have time to stay for the next English language tour) it's well worth a visit and the history is enlightening.

Like most reviewers, seemed to stumble across this museum. You have to take the guide and it adds real life to this house and all of the guided tours seem to be pretty small so you get one to one attention. The house is a wealthy merchants home that is preserved exactly as it was left. Great visit to kill... More

I went there the morning I was leaving as I had a few hours and did not want to go to far from hotel. It 's a beautiful house and the garden is refreshing with lots of different mixed architecture, very nice! If you are for EEUU go on Wednesdays, only day free of charge.

In a back street is this hidden restored and developed palace. A great mix of Moorish and Christian styles finished to a very high standard. See upstairs too, even if the guided tour is in Spanish - these rooms are where people lived and are often sumptuous. Recommended.

Thought this place was fantastic as I had visited a few attractions such as the Alhambra and a couple of Alcazars. This was different in that you can go upstairs (as part of a paid guided tour) and see the rooms in an inhabited state. Although the tour was in Spanish (and I don't understand much Spanish) it was very... More

Had a lovely time walking through this house. The history, the architecture and the gardens were amazing. Pay the extra and do the tour of the top floor. The guide was informative and not boring. It is a definite must see. This visit was my first day in Seville :)

Located in the middle of the Barrio Santa Cruz it's an elegant architectural landmark with a charming garden. I arrived at 5pm - last entry 6.30pm - closes 7pm - no tours of upstairs at this time. Free entry for EEU citizens - 6 Euro the rest of the world! Very strange queuing system - obliged to wait 15-minutes despite... More
