Having been to the Alhambra in Granada and the Alcazar in Seville, the Casa de Pilatos did not knock our socks off. We did not plan ahead for our visit, which meant we ended up missing the tour of the second floor, which I understand is worthwhile. If you don't want to miss a thing on your visit to Seville,...

A little difficult to find but well worth the effort. Stepping back in time in a place that is truly memorable. A beautiful building kept as it was in its heyday. The courtyard is stunning and the various rooms very interesting.

This is an amazing place and not to be missed whilst visiting Seville. Absolutely exquisite tiles and timber work preserved beautifully. Gardens are delightful. Take the extra guided tour of the upstairs area..amazing! Nice gift shop and toilets available.

We really enjoyed seeing the Casa de Pilatos. The tile work here is the best preserved of all the sites we visited. We took the tour of the upstairs but the real splendor is downstairs. I would skip the tour if I visited again. I really loved the fountains in the garden.

Peaceful and tranquil, again no crowds. Slight downside was the tour of the upstairs, you were given a timed entry on arrival which was for an hour later, this was far longer than it took to wander around the downstairs and the garden. We weren't allowed to join the Spanish tour half an hour earlier. Very peculiar painting of a... More

We arrived in Seville at around 3pm via bus from Albufeira, Portugal and wanted to check something out before places started closing. This was located close to our hotel so we grabbed our kids (ages 3 and 6) and headed over. We had a great time touring the space and were able to join one of the scheduled tours that... More

This is a lovely little palace, not too expensive, definitely do the upstairs guided tour as well as the downstairs via an audio tour. Really interesting.

Make sure to pay extra to visit the upper floor, the collection of paintings and tiles are beautiful. Enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgable guides complete the experience.

Great place to get to know the local architecture. I think its very similar to the Reales Alcázares de Sevilla, so if you have to choose between them, I would go to the Alcázares - but only if you have about 2,3 hours to spend there. Go to Pilatos house if you want something smaller and quicker. Visit is also... More
