Owner description: 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.

We enjoyed the tour around the first floor area - one group in Spanish, one group in English. The palace has a calm aura and there are many quiet places to contemplate the history and observe some of the startling detail of the beautiful tiles and decorative wood carvings. A great visit which took us to a different part of Seville - very worthwhile!

Not many tourists and the place blew us away. Statues from year 80. We liked it better than the Alhambra

I agree with other commentators that Casa de pilatos does not receive the attention it deserves. The combination of the house decorations, the gardens and the tour (Spanish and english) upstairs of the living quarters were stunning. Glad I took the time to visit.

what a wonderful surprise. the guide books dont give this place enough credit for being as superb as it is. we were both so happy we went there. a lot of history and within a smaller place than the alcazar, but in many ways just as interesting.

The palace is truly beautiful. It has 2 tours - one of the general areas and gardens and one of the top floor with the actual rooms of the palace or the 2 together.

I personally advice you to skip the top floor. You will see a bunch of pretty, old rooms and a lot of paintings. There is a tour guide, who mostly talks about the paintings and in a VERY VERY BAD English. So this is half an hour that you can easily save.

The gardens however and the patios are precious! Here you will receive an audio guide at the entrance ( free of charge) with which you can learn the history of the palace.

Entrance fee is for the whole Palace is small (8 EUR I think) It's very close to the centre but a bit hard to find, but if you take a taxi he'll know the place.
Check it out :)
