We should have paid more attention to the reviews saying this wasn’t worth the 8€ entry fee. It’s nice enough but we could only see 3 rooms and 2 courtyards. Casa Las Duenas and casa Pilatos are each much better value.

A pleasant obligatory and short guided tour (30 mins) of Mme Salinas's city mansion. She's 103, lives upstairs and still climbs the stairs every day. Two of her twelve sons also live on the premises. Just round the corner from the cathedral and La Giralda, so do pop in.

An unexpected gem found as we were walking by and had taken a wrong turn. A lovely, understated building unprepossessing from the outside but opens up inside. If you’re interested in architecture and history then this place is very interesting and is still lived in by the owners. Informative tour with a local guide who spoke excellent English.

What a find! We were staying a couple of doors from Casa de Salinas and spotted it on our way back one day. So pleased we went in. Beautiful private house and the 25-minute guided tour led by Maria was excellent. Definitely worth the €10 entry fee.

I had some spare time and managed to visit this place. If you’re like me and dreading ‘guided tour’ please know that it was informative and nicely paced. If you have 30 min, this place is worth a visit. You will understand reasoning behind this place being open and why it’s done this way. Lucky find and I’m happy that I landed here.

In the 16th century, Seville was the most important city in Europe. It was the port where the riches of the Americas reached Spain. This was the time that the Casa de Salinas was built. The founder of this palace was Baltasar Jaen, who belonged to one of the most prominent families of the city. The palace is located in the old part of town, close to the Cathedral. In the 20th century the palace was bought by the Salinas Family, who restored the building to give it its original look. The Salinas Family still lives on the second floor of the palace. That is why the second floor cannot be visited today.

At the entrance of the palace there is a Roman face and a fountain of water spouts from its mouth to a water basin below. The palace has two beautiful patios that can be visited. One of them has a large Roman mosaic on the floor. There are also two large ground floor rooms that have period furniture that can be seen also. Of interest are the many coffered ceilings with Mudejar designs that are specially beautiful. Some have their original colors. The doors also have Mudejar designs and call attention. The bases of the walls of the patios are covered with beautiful ceramic tile with old designs. The second patio has a beautiful white sculpture of the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus in a niche of the wall. There is also a little ceramic fountain below it.

I was the only visitor and I had the great surprise to be welcomed and given a tour. The site is really worth visiting not only because it’s beautiful, but also to see how modern people can live in such places (the Salinas family still lives there). The 16th century patios, the Roman mosaic, original tiles and a Pacheco should be enough to convince you.

Sevilla offers many little old 'palacios' which you can visit. Do try this Casa de Salinas (about 6 EUR for an half an hour guided tour), a real treasure!

Oh, if you are walking by and have the time it's okay but I would not skip a cathedral to see this. The tour was not expensive, and well done, but would probably be better had I seen all the houses or historical sites associated with this house. They give you a map and discounts to see the other attractions nearby, but I was only in Seville for 3 days and already had plans.
