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.

Casa de Pilatos is not very big, but surely nice to visit. Especially because you can visit the top floor with the personal rooms of the owners. The tiles on the ground floor are very beautiful.

This place is very pretty, with ceramic tiles covering almost all the walls. We were lucky that we were attending an event here, so we didn't have to pay to get in. I'm not sure how much admission is.

This is not easy to find and you will need a map! It was bult in the 16th century and with your admission price you get an audio guide. You will also be given a time for a tour of the apartments upstairs - do go as it is really interesting but you won't be allowed to take photos. The... More

What an underrated gem in Sevilla! This was around the corner from where we were staying, so we thought we would go check it out. The outside is so unassuming and it's right in the middle of a neighborhood, so if you blink you will miss it. Once you walk inside though, WOW! If you skip the Alcazar, this is... More

Visited on our second trip to Seville, having seen Alcazar on first trip. I wouldn't recommend visiting soon after seeing Alcazar as I think you'll be disappointed, but we really enjoyed walking the grounds, and the area surrounding has some great tapas bars for lunch afterwards. Overall would recommend seeing before Alcazar or on a separate trip to Seville.

Extremely rude staff. Ignored us for 5 minutes. Admittedly she was serving someone else but did not have courtesy to acknowledge us or the wait. When we paid, we got the finger waggle and $$ returned. Signage also inadequate and accusatory.

This palace built in the 1500's has spectacular tiled walls with mauves, greens, blues and gold, and beautiful Roman statuary. It has been owned by only 2 families and remains a home of a Duke and a Duchess. it is a MUST see.

The casa is very interesting, the audio guide extremely informative and the tour of upstairs very good. You are not hurried around, you really can take your time.

It may be a nice palace but it looks simple after Alcazar. It also has a nice garden. First floor can be visit by yourself but you must wait for guide for the second floor.

Beautiful "Moorish" tile work, ornamental plaster, gardens, and later 19th century additions which do not detract from the integrity of the spaces. But, the originators of the family fortunes did profit by buying up and/or being gifted the distressed assets of victims of the first Inquisition of Spain. Just keep that in mind when you think that the family still... More
