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

we visited this site on several days of our holiday to try and see what goes on there but it was all locked up each day. there was an old green pond filled with gunge near the statue but apart from that it was like a ghost town area. there seemed to be two shops which were both closed and... 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

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.
