Overview

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.

The house itself is a splendid example of Arab architecture. As other reviewers have noted, it’s not crowded so you can enjoy it at your leisure. Skip the tour to the second floor - it’s boring and not worth the money. Staff was indifferent,

Beautiful house with the typical beautiful tiles everywhere! It’s like a mini-Alcázar (ground floor). No student discount, but for 8 euro you can visit the house with a free (very very boring) audio tour. Upper floor is €2 more. You go there with a guide...More

Greatest variety of ceramic tiles of 15th and 16th centuries to be seen in one place. Stunning timber ceilings. Carved and gilded but not excessively. Several beautifully maintained courtyard style gardens. Amazing Roman statues and 16th century busts of roman emperors. Private quarters comfortably furnished...More

We visited this palace in January. Explored the ground level and garden with the aid of the audio guide. Loved the moorish tile work. The upstairs tour was interesting. However, it felt rushed. The tour guide lacked the personality to make the tour memorable. Beautiful...More

I was left with more questions than answers after the very rigid tour. If you have time, go but I would not recommend make it a priority in Sevilla

We hadn't actually heard about this place till our host recommended it and since it was only 5 minutes walk we thought we would have a look. Although the gardens are not the best in January the ceramics are good all year round. After this...More
