Casa de Pilatos
 Seville
Tourist and holiday information for Seville, Spain

 
 
This building is a 16th-century palace in Mudéjar style, like the Alcázar. It is delightfully dilapidated with swirling tiled walls, elaborate domed ceilings with inlaid wood and overgrown gardens that are perfect for a siesta or for glimpsing the palace’s current residents, the Dukes of Medinaceli.

This 16th-century Andalusian palace of the dukes of Medinaceli recaptures the splendor of the past, combining Gothic, mudéjar, and Plateresque styles in its courtyards, fountains, and salons. According to tradition, this is a reproduction of Pilate's house in Jerusalem. Don't miss the two old carriages or the rooms filled with Greek and Roman statues. The collection of paintings includes works by Carreño, Pantoja de la Cruz, Sebastiano del Piombo, Lucas Jordán, Batalloli, Pacheco, and Goya. The museum's first floor can be seen by guided tour only, but the ground floor, patios, and gardens are self-guided. The palace is about a 7-minute walk northeast of the cathedral on the northern edge of Barrio de Santa Cruz, amidst a warren of labyrinthine streets whose traffic is funneled through the nearby Calle de Aguilas.
