Having explored much of the city, discovering beautiful buildings, cafes and restaurants along the way, our final morning in Seville was spent soaking up some history and culture. Which, we found in the nearby Casa de Pilatos.
Casa de Pilatos is one of the most beautiful examples of Andalusian palaces with its impressive architecture, precious tilework and well-kept gardens that you will instantly love!
The palace courtyard, Patio Principal, is guarded by life-size antique statues and twenty-five busts of Roman Emperors and Spanish Kings.
Have a seat among them and take in all the little details.
The gardens are as lush as they are enchanting; fountains, plenty of greenery, palms and orange trees, bougainvillaea and wisteria outlined by the colourful azulejos tiles which are considered to be among the finest in Seville. The palace has two gardens, simply known as the large and small garden.
Moving between spaces has been planned harmoniously, even when you are indoors, you get glimpses out to the green gardens.
Casa de Pilatos is not within the usual tourist circuits so you can wander in peace and take your sweet time.
