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.

This was the second time we have visited this sight. It still impressed. They have done a lot of improvements to the gardens in 2 years. The history is extensive and the quality of workmanship is wonderful. I think I'll look into a private tour when I return to Sevilla.

Stunning example of 16th century Andalusian architecture in old Seville. Best enjoyed at a slow pace to appreciate the tranquillity. Stunning tiles and ornate arches. We were pleased to arrive just in time for a brief tour of the upper part of the house.

Wonderful palace with lots of details to admire. Best with not much crowd, so travel during winter! Tiles, mosaics, arches, patios and water features... why don't we build these any more?

Amazing place that brought you back at the time when Sevilla was the center of the world. It is a place impossible to miss in your travel to Sevilla.

This is an intriguing palace with a fascinating history. Its a real mix of styles but has fabulous tiled rooms and a lovely sheltered peaceful courtyard. The ceilings are amazing. The self-guided audio tour is excellent.

After queuing for what seemed like and was an eternity we were most disappointed with the property.There was nothing very much to see and would not recommend it as a must see.

Wonderful gardens with fountains and tile work. The interior was airy, yet intimate. Took our time and enjoyed the beauty of the museum and the surrounding greenery.

This museum is incredibly inspiring - lovely gardens (even in Winter) - the inner court yard and the tile work is just amazing.

We would probably not have seen this place if it had not been included on our tour. Architectural and gardens are very intriguing. Overall a peaceful oasis in a busy city. Take your time and enjoy the peacefulness. Not a sight that a person should rush in and out of seeing.
