Beautiful building, built around a central courtyard and water feature, like most of the buildings in Seville. Interesting tour of this house, which is still in the same family. Great historical features and references. Masses of glazed ceramic walls/floors/seats

Very disappointed. All the gardens were closed with rope so we couldn't see them. A entrance price of 10 euro is really too much for that.

God! It was hot when we went. Make one slip in the route and you’re carrion; dessicated, frazzled and left for dead on the narrow pavement. . And the Casa was only 8 minutes from our hotel! It’s easy to get lost here. But once...More

We visited the Casa de Pilatos on a Monday afternoon (when the entrance is free for EU citizens as of 3 p.m.). We had to queue for 1 hour, but it was worth it (though I already visited the palace two years ago...). For security...More

12 euros for entre fee and access to upstairs. For the upstairs, taking photos are not allowed and it was stuffy and I noticed a moldy smell. I need my time and money back. Alcázar is 120% better.

We almost did not see it, and this really would have been a mistake. This is a splendid house, very attaching, with many interesting features. Much smaller than the Alcazar of course, but as refined as I can get. Highly recommended

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
