Overview
More
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.

Beautiful court yard, amazing gardens with waterfalls, stunning property. I actually preferred it to queuing up for the Cathedral. Its 16th century. Definitely worth a visit. But a bit dull for children

A very beautiful house in the center of the historic area of Sevilla. Combines the mudejar design with the local architecture bringing the best of both. Incredible interior gardens.

Pleasant 10 minute walk from the Cathedral to the Case de Pilatos. Beautiful buildings with some of the prettiest and most tranquil gardens I have been in, in a long time. Did think the guide for the upstairs rooms was simply going through the motions...More

This house is a good example of mudejar architecture - Moorish in style but built after the Muslims were expelled so including animals and portraits, and without caligraphy. It is worth paying a little more to see the upstairs rooms, the 'winter palace'.

It was frankly a boring experience. Certainly not worth 10€ I had to pay. Audioguide was unbelievably long and dull. The roos are pretty but that's it. Most of those on the ground floor are empty! To see the second floor you need to pay...More

I have seen most the touristic places in Sevilla and wanted something different. This is a privately owned mini castle. Architecturally speaking, it is similar to Alcazar but on a smaller scale. It has a courtyard surrounded by arches, exquisite carvings, colorful tiles, and beautiful...More

Behind a deceivingly simple facade lies a lovely place full of colourful, beautiful tiles and lovely gardens. Less queues and much quieter than the Alcazar, but of matching beauty.

The audio guide for each room was so so long, so that you lost interest quickly in what they were saying. The sections should have been a lot more consise and to the point.
