Love those colorful azulejo tiles you've been seeing around Spain? This is the place for you. It's decorated with 150 different styles (not tiles, styles!) of Spanish glazed tiles. A delight for the eyes. Casa de Pilatos means "Pilate's House," the nickname given to this...More

I stumbled upon this place over the weekend and was glad I went in. I had the whole place to myself to take beautiful photos and checkout out the grounds. It's not as big, grand, or well-maintained as Real Alcazar, but there are barely any...More

This is a lovely old building but relatively expensive to view (E12). I like listening to the history but the audio guide was overpowering - far too long and detailed.

I arrived about half an hour before closing so was only allowed to see the ground floor which cost 10 Euros, had I had time it would have cost me 12 euros to do upstairs as well. There was not that much to see though...More

We'd been to casa de Salinas earlier in the day and they suggested going to casa de pliatus. It is a self guided tour with audio guide. We had a 1euro discount having been to casa Salinas earlier. The building and architecture are very impressive...More

This building displays a mix of Islamic and Christian architectural styles and is well worth a visit. It also houses an interesting painting of a woman with a beard.

This is a must-visit when you are in Sevilla. There is so much to see and learn. The most wired thin is the painting 🖼 from 1613 by Jusepe Ribera of Magdalena Ventura. I will not tell why - this should be your own discovery...More

It's a very nice house and without any doubt wotrth a visit. But... You pay almost as much as for the Alcazar and there is much less to see. Yes you get a (boring) audioguide, but not a plan. And there must be missing signs....More

It's very nice place with pretty courtyard. Tiles, garden, usual Sevillan stuff. Although a little weird - some guys wandering with ladders and buckets, paintings are just printed copies, and so on. :) Nevertheless - if you liked Alcazar, you can enjoy tiles here too....More

Lovely palace with very interesting history. Had a guided tour of the upper floor where the private quarters are - the guide was very good switching from Spanish to English easily. Many examples of beautiful tile work and sculpture.

A word of warning. The afternoon we visited there was free entry for EU citizens which resulted in us having to queue for at least 30 minutes to get in. It also meant that we were not able to visit the upper floor as the... More
