We loved our visit to this Palacio. It dates to the 16th century but was remodeled in the 19th C. The owner at that time (Countess of Lebrija) amassed a very varied collection, some of which came from the Roman ruins near Seville. Do not expect a coherent style here - the house, furnishings and decorations are from different eras and of widely varying styles, yet somehow it all blends into something wonderful. The best parts (for me) were the amazing, huge and beautiful Roman floor mosaics, Roman floor tiles and ceramic wall tiles from 16th and 17th centuries. We took the guided tour of the 2nd floor and personally, I did not care for its more modern look. If I visited here again I would definitely skip the upper floor which is an extra charge and not really worth the expense.

We did find the audio tour very long winded and a bit tedious. However it is worth paying the extra for the guided tour (In Spanish and English) of the upper floor. A bit unfair maybe but it did feel like a poor mans Real Alcazar.

this palace has a wide range of andalusian tiles and a big number of archeological treasures, like mosaics in the ground floor, which you can visit on your own. The former owner even changed the architecture of the rooms to fit in these mosaics. The second floor which you can only visit on a guided tour is well worth a visit. Furnished with and decorated with designs of the late 19th and early 20th century it is very impressive. we enjoyed the tour with the knowledgeable guide.

What a great find! The countess put together an incredible collection of antique tiles: Roman mosaic floors, tiled walls from a renaissance convent reassembled here with an eclectic art collection. We paid for the tour of the second floor and were glad that we did. The rooms are packed with her collections, and they were reconfigured so that the various mosaics could fit in the space.

It's surprising that this is not better known, as the Condess de Lebrija was a woman who collected a significant range of Roman artefacts, notably a variety of ancient mosaics which she rearranged to walls of her palacio to fit around. It is possible to buy a ticket to include the upper floor, the 'winter rooms' and it's very well worth it as there is a lot to see. A really good visit.
