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.

i love this place so much that i wish no one knows about!!! it is a beautiful gem in Seville....a peaceful hide out from the city....although there was a line (we had to wait 15-20 min) but it was worth it....once your inside...you enter a different world....every where you look is a master piece...from the floor to the ceilings to the stairs....take your time here...enjoy the sunshine in the garden and the cool of the rooms. just Enjoy!

Lots of highly decorated and lovely rooms to look around. Nice garden area. Not as good as the Alcazar but still worth a visit if you are in the area

Had a lovely time walking through this house. The history, the architecture and the gardens were amazing. Pay the extra and do the tour of the top floor. The guide was informative and not boring. It is a definite must see.

We had a free afternoon and fancied a walk and it turned out this was right round the corner from our hotel, wasn't crammed with tourists and is so beautiful. A calm visit - no queues, not peering to see round tour groups and an excellent audio guide to take round. A great diversion.

This house is an absolute gem, with original paintings, beautiful gardens and a very cosmopolitan patio, with Greek statues surrounded by Sevillan tiles. Oddly, something that contributes strongly to the excitement of this place is its location: it is tucked away down a little street leading to Alfalfa...in fact, I have walked past it a good few times thinking that whoever lives there must be very rich, without ever realizing that it was Casa de Pilatos! The entry price is quite expensive (8 euros if I remember correctly), which gets you a guided tour and time to look around the building. You also get a little radio on which you can press the marked numbers on the map and it will play an audio clip of historical facts. However, I found it much better soaking in the beauty without the technological distraction, and being told these historical facts in the tour later on. Definitely worth a visit despite the price - the gardens, paintings and short distance from Alfalfa definitely give it its winning points.
