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.

Loved this smaller visit which included two gardens as well as actually seeing some restoration in progress. Gift shop was wonderful and actually bought several items. I could have spent more time enjoying the intricate tile work everywhere.

We really enjoyed visiting this site. We went later in the day and there were only a few people there-which we love. The gardens were amazing! I was able to capture some amazing pictures here. Note, It's a little difficult to find if you don't know the lay of the land, but it is well worth it.

The most famous palace in Sevilla. It's very beautiful. A lot patios to visit. Nice stairs and azulejos. It's a guided visit for the upper floor. The guide wasn't really motivated.

This splendid palace is not easy to find but it is so worth the effort as there is some beautiful moorish style architecture. My one grouse was with the audio guide which seemed to me over complex and not to add to the enjoyment of the visit.

I loved the visit of this amazingly well conserved Noble Palace , at the opening in the morning, not too crowded, Once inside the first courtyard in the middle of astonishing statues, columns, wall covered of sophisticated azulejos, this palace finished in 1521, it's a real masterpiece , in this mixture of style typical of Sevilla, Mudejar, Gothic, and Renaissance...

We really enjoyed this place. It is a little bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit. The architecture and decoration is mainly in the moorish style and is beautiful. There is also a small garden area, where you can sit and relax and take the whole experience in. We had an audio guide but found it hard... More

This architecture of this dazzling house features a startling mixture of 16th century Renaissance Italian and Mudéjar Spanish styles - coats of arms and elegant arches meet phantasmagoric tiles and intricate wooden marquetry ceilings and doors. The gardens are strewn with filched ancient Roman and Greek antiquities and are breathtakingly beautiful. The audio guide is excellent - almost as much... More
