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

Interesting courtyards and the visit upstairs (with a guide as it is still someone's home) was worth it. An audio guide is included in the price for the ground floor and courtyards, a bit long winded in places but good to give you some idea of the history of the house.

Still in use as a private home to some duchess or other. 6 euro in but pay the extra 2 and get a tour of the upstairs.

Pilatos never slept here, but if he had, he'd have never left. This has to be one of the nicest house museums i've seen in a while. The stairs are glorious tile, the patio is classical and filled with wonderful Italian sculpture, but my favorite room was the gold room with the lovely Roman reliefs. DO go upstairs! it's only...

Beautiful private house now a museum with nice gardens. Interesting courtyards. I did not visit the upper floor as it cost extra! Well worth a visit with audio guide

Casa de Pilatos, was the Palace of adelantados and later on the ducal house of Medinaceli in Sevilla.. It ia a mgnificent palace built originally in the XV Century. It houses the most beautiful azulejo stairs I have ever seen among stunning patios. One of the best attractions in Sevilla it ia a pleasure to visit.

For starters, Casa de Pilatos IS beautiful, don't get me wrong. The two floor palace is a really interesting combination of Islamic architecture similar to the Alcazar (bottom floor) and Renaissance architecture (top floor). I was really looking forward to seeing it. While I found the place beautiful, I found the tour very disappointing. The entrance fee is 8 euros,... More

An impressively well preserved palatial home. Whilst not a massive building, the patios are beautiful, the architecture, mosaics and gardens are wonderful examples of Spanish life past. An audio guide comes free with entry but was an incoherent onslaught of information which was impossible to digest. There are a few signs which suffer from a Google translate job in English.... More

Small but beautiful. Gardens were taken cared in good condition. There are also some paintings and ancient articles upstairs.
