  • It is a particular construction. Surely there to see it and take a photo. Is near the Park of Maria Luisa. The only thing is that it is at a crossroads and it is difficult to see it well.

  • The origin of the name of this beautiful palecete, it is in this beautiful legend that you I'm going to let you tell. Maria de las Mercedes, daughter of the Dukes of Montpensier, was the wife of Alfonso XII and thus Queen Consort. Due to his health problems, he spent long periods in Seville, place where felt great fondness. She sat in one of the lounges of this palacito very close to one of its windows and while taking the Sun, looked to move the clock hands stitching. Alfonso XII, ruled and shipped the Affairs of State with his ministers in the Alcázar of Seville. But come noon, took the horse and rode to the Palace to see his beloved. The Queen status worsened, so he decided to move to Madrid. Note also that legend has it that the last thing they saw before the departure was palacito. María de las Mercedes dies shortly after his arrival in Madrid at the age of 18 years and a few months after her wedding with D. Alfonso XII. But all this legend is completely impossible, because María de las Mercedes died in 1878 and the building is constructed in 1893. This building is located on the corner forming the Maria Luisa Avenue and the Paseo de las Delicias. In time it belonged to the gardens of the Palace of San Telmo, today María Luisa Park. He was ordered to be built as Châtelet for the guardian of the Palace, by D. Antonio de Orléans, Duke of Montpensier to the architect Juan Talavera de la Vega. It is the first Sevilla Neomudejar building. The Duke of Montpensier died in 1890 and in 1893 the Infanta María Luisa Fernanda de Borbón, Duchess of Montpensier, donated to the city of Seville, much of the gardens of the Palace of San Telmo, place where he had hitherto been the residence of the Dukes, except the North where Châtelet was. Currently this building is a tourist information point.

  • Curious building located next to the Maria Luisa Park, at the intersection of avenida de María Luisa, with the Paseo de Las Delicias. They have a highly original facade, round shapes and color "land", and which today houses a municipal tourist information office.
