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.

The ground floor of this Palace is quite impressive with a suite of pleasant gardens and courtyards . Antique statues and wall ceramic decorations give it added charm. The upstairs guided tour(additional fee) is much less interesting,no photos allowed.

Tucked away in the old part of Sevilla this place is well worth a visit. The house (more of a palace) has undergone several transformations most notably following the Renaissance as Sevillian families grew incredibly wealthy on the proceeds of their exploits in the New World. A really interesting way to spend a few hours

Our walking tour took us to this House of Pilate. The place was closed but we were able to see through the arched gates. The casa, really more of a mansion seemed haunting with real young beautiful marquesa as its resudent. Definitely next time.

If you love tiles, go here. Its hard to imagine how the decor was planned but it must have been quite a spectacular sight in its day. Its not very well kept now, but most Europeans visit on a wednesday afternoon when its free. The tour is in Spanish which is not good for everyone, otherwise you don't get to... More

Very much a jewel in the crown of Seville, this is a beautiful palace, small and intimate but full of wonderful architecture and building techniques that are awe inspiring. It really is a must to visit, you just need a couple of hours and so worth it!!

Fascinating history brought to life with a very detailed audio guide to the beautiful ground floor. But the 1st floor guided tour is also a 'must do' addition. As you walk round, the art and photos bring a completely different viewpoint of the home's aristocratic owner's more recent history. And we found our guide very helpful.

A privatly run museum, a very nice mixed-style building (some parts closed due to renovation). All the joy was spoiled by the rude staff. The same experience as in Viana Palace in Córdoba, but there the staff is normal. Here they do not allow to leave your luggage, even if they had an area for that, so I asked the... More

With less tourists than the Alcazar, the Casa de Pilatos was a pleasure to wander round. From the Azulejos tiles, to the Roman sculptures, to the Moorish ceilings, and not forgetting the beautiful loggias seen from the gardens, this palace is absolutely worth visiting.

This Palace is really a must. It seems to be the best kept palace. Every detail is wonderful, with the Andalusian style .
