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 went about 5pm on friday. There was not many people so I could freely roam around. It is not very big, but able to see andalusian style tiles, roman statues and arabian form.

If you love the Alcazar and can spare an hour to visit this historic mansion, it is well worth the time and money. We could really appreciate the beautiful architecture, tiles and carving with fewer crowds around.

By complete coincidence we arrived 2 minutes before "free entrance for EU visitors" applied. This meant that the security guard made us stand in a queue which he penned with a barrier. After ten minutes or more my partner broke ranks and found the guard...More

We chose to visit Casa de Pilatos on the Monday afternoon as it was advertised as being free to 100 Europeans at a time after 3pm. Indeed it was, but it meant a short queue for half an hour and to be honest we were...More

This wonderful building is located just behind the place where we were staying and was probably the highlight of our holiday in Seville. It's stunning and should be high on the list of any visitor to Seville. It's a mini version of the Alcazar but...More

Has some very interesting paintings, ornaments, carpets and furniture. Charming, airy courtyard. A fascinating insight into life in earlier times.

This is a beautiful place to visit. Obviously smaller than the Alcazar but that's part of the appeal as it's far less crowded and you can spend more time admiring the beauty of the courtyard, gardens and exquisite tiles and stucco plasterwork. By all means...More

We didn't buy tickets in advance, there wasn't much of a queue. Good luck!
