If you have previously visited the Alcazar in Seville then you won't be so impressed with what you see in Casa de Pilatos - especially as the entrance fee for these attractions is the same. We visited on a Monday late afternoon when EU citizens...More

We were expecting more from this but apart from the exterior for photography, couldn't really see the wow factor. It's situated in an interesting square surrounded by narrow streets but looks mainly residential and has a constant flow of traffic outside.

I seem to be at odds with most of the reviewers as my wife and I did not enjoy or rate our visit. Admittedly, we only paid for the ground floor admission but there was so little to see. Access to the (very) small garden...More

We had a most enjoyable visit to the Casa de Pilatos. Good combination of Italian Renaissance, Gothic and Spanish Mudejar style. The tile and marble work is good. It may be a little difficult to find the Plaza de Pilatos, depending on where you start,...More

This Casa is underrated in the guides. The building and gardens whilst not on the scale of the Alcazar are similar in style. The tile details are exceptional. Well worth seeking out.

Please make the effort to visit this wonderful house and garden. We enjoyed wandering around. Think Alcazar on a smaller scale.

We had a lovely visit to this house and had it to ourselves which was an antidote to some of the more crowded parts of Seville. Very lovely with a gorgeous garden and gave a clearer feel of how people lived.

The house is interesting and beautiful but the English information via headphones is extremely verbose and uses lots of very obscure words. Difficult for a native speaker to understand and enjoy, never mind for someone for whom English is not their first language. Upstairs there...More

When we went there were not a lot of people. Loved it and the guided tour on the uper floor was short but very instructive.

A short queue and entry charge gains you admittance to a graceful villa that conveys a good impression of one of the roman villas from which it was copied. There are lots of antiquities on display including statues and pillars probably legitimately filched from the...More

A word of warning. The afternoon we visited there was free entry for EU citizens which resulted in us having to queue for at least 30 minutes to get in. It also meant that we were not able to visit the upper floor as the... More
