Palace of the Countess of Lebrija, Seville
(4.1/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Decorated with pieces of other buildings and artwork from all over the world, Palace of the Countess of Lebrija is one of the finest houses in Seville. Some of the tiles used to piece together the many mosaics were retrieved from an abandoned convent, and a coffered ceiling and a frieze were reclaimed from a 16th-century palace. Although it is commonly called a palace, the building was actually once the residence of a countess, not a king or queen. Countess Lebrija collected the artifacts that are displayed on the ground floor. Guided tours of the upper rooms showcase ornamented walls and furniture. These take place daily and can be booked the day of your visit.

  • Yesterday we went to the full (2 adults) and 2 children family to visit this House Sevillian palace. Upon payment of €32 were 45 minutes visiting the downstairs at which struck us all the impressive mosaics in different rooms and courtyards that seemed to be in perfect condition. Seeing as one of them is outdoors on a patio, I was surprised by what rain drop you directly to not having any protection. To not dwell on what other visitors have explained, I will say that the floor seemed very complete as to previously designated Roman mosaics, joined different rooms that host Caliphate, Muslim, pre-Columbian ceramic dishes of Talavera de la Reina, etc. Following this visit, the guided visit to the upper floor, which unlike the ground floor (among other things) is prohibited from taking pictures we did about 17 hours. This guided tour of half an hour, is highly recommended (if you only want to visit the ground floor cost you €5 and if you want to visit the two, € 8) and visit different rooms, beautiful all of them (library, Chapel, Baroque Hall, room Arabic, Spanish room, bedroom, dining room) which are collected various objects and others who were gathered by the Countess for many years. Personally I really liked, library (with more than 6000 books) and noticed me that there was a painting attributed to Zurbaran. The guide very pleasant and basic in its explanations although with a leave end in its pronunciation (in the end of their phrases) that us caused a uncomfortable situation before the uncontrollable laughter of our children. By the way, visit by assumed that recommended for children, at least for them our that have 11 and 12 years and that them loved the visit to this museum Palace. Of truth that recommend totally visit this amazing Palace, beautiful.

  • Really it seems that 5 euros per person including children on the ground floor is somewhat expensive but is really a very interesting visit, it is not the priority of Seville but if it is one of those treasures hidden that even many Sevillians unaware. Roman mosaics with acceptable conservation

  • There's the line for access to the buildings and the gardens. Access was actually limited when we visited. A few beautiful rooms and beautiful patios. We have skipped the guided tour of the first floor in Spanish or in English (and expensive)

  • It's worth paying extra to see the upper level. A knowledgeable English speaking guide took me through the rooms. I was the only person who showed up for the 5pm tour. No photos allowed.
  • Far more beautiful than I expected! I can recommend the palace with no reservations. The guided tour is very much worth it and it includes access to the second floor. Only 3 eur extra.
  • Gorgeous building, ancient artifacts and patios. Not many people around another advantage
  • Great Roman floors. Beautiful Seville home well worth the visit.
  • Love it wow
