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.

When the Cathedral in Seville is closed due to too many visitors, this is the next best place to visit. Owned by the Medici family for many generations and is filled with beautiful statues and architecture.

Really nice place with many courtyards and different styles. We went in on the free afternoon which is limited to downstairs. As we didn't have much time this was fine and gave a good impression. Otherwise would have paid to go up as well.

Very disappointed. We'd read the guide books and this looked well worth a visit. Not sure we found the place people had raved about. Staff not overly helpful / curt. Pricing at €8 is ok, but somewhat surprised to have to pay the same price for our two children, no student/child price. Whilst some of the architecture is of interest... More

The tile work in this palace is breathtaking--room after room of wonderfully tiled walls around a lovely courtyard, and two somewhat shabby but very restful gardens. The ground floor is the gem so skip the tour of the upper floor--the guide was difficult to understand and not very knowledgeable. I've been to Seville several times and always look forward to...

This casa is in the back streets near our hotel and we passed it every day so we went inside. There was a short queue most days. Lay out is typical of houses of this type and there isn't much to see here and for the same entrance fee you can visit the Real Alcazare. We didn't bother with the... More

Worth to be seen as the founder's have travelled to Italy and brought back several very interesting items from Roman era - also very nice tiles around the various rooms - the first floor is nothing special - and furnished with quite uninteresting XIXth century pieces, only accessible to (too large) groups

An unexpected visit which left us breath taken! Hidden in the Centre of Sevilla this is worth the visit! Incredible gardens and ground floor and also great guided visit for the first floor! Not to be missed!

Although a bit neglected, you can really get historically feel for life in ancient Sevilla. A sweet gem of a place to spend an hour or so exploring!

This palace is not so well known, but it is certainly a must when you are in seville. It is certainly worth to take the complete tour to see also the winter palace ( upstairs), because they are very different from the ground floor. Both worth to visit. The visit is in English and spanish but the English of the... More

A little off the beaten path, but well worth seeking out. The art and architecture is breathtaking, and the audio guide is a must if you want a complete picture of the property. Advice - if you want to take some photographs, do so early as it fills quite quickly, Once you have taken the pictures you want, then do... More
