Visitor Guide and Information for Casa de Pilatos Sevilla

Casa de Pilatos, often referred to as Pilate’s House, is a historic palace located in Seville, Spain. This historic residence showcases a fusion of traditional Seville architectural styles, including Renaissance, Gothic, and Mudejar influences.

Visitors can explore the grand palace rooms, lush courtyards, and beautifully landscaped gardens while immersing themselves in Spanish history and art.

It’s one of my favourite places to visit in Seville, and often overlooked by tourists. Whilst not as grand as the Royal Alcazar, it has many similarities but nowhere near as busy – it’s relaxing and peaceful and a hidden gem of Seville attractions.

Casa de Pilatos, also known as Pilate’s House, originates back to the 15th century when it was conceived as a noble residence by Pedro Enríquez de Quiñones and his wife, Catalina de Ribera. This visionary couple embarked on a journey to create a home that would serve as a testament to their wealth, taste, and devotion to the city of Seville.

Over the centuries, Casa de Pilatos underwent several transformations, influenced by the tastes and aspirations of successive generations of the Enríquez de Ribera family. It was this family’s artistic patronage that led to the inclusion of diverse architectural styles, including Renaissance, Gothic, and Mudejar elements, resulting in the remarkable fusion that characterizes the estate today.

The name “Pilate’s House” (Casa de Pilatos) was attributed to the residence in the 16th century. According to local legend, a journey to Jerusalem by one of the Enríquez de Ribera family members inspired the design of the property, with certain elements reminiscent of the path followed by Christ during the Passion

What to see in Casa de Pilatos Seville

One of my favourite rooms in the palace is the Flagellation Chapel. It’s the oldest room in the whole of the house, and has a combination of both muslim and christian styles which is beautiful to see up close – especially the tiles! The chapel gets its name from the flagellation of christ.

There is also an upper floor the to house, that can only be visited if you are part of a guided tour (ticket information above). Whilst it is an added cost to access these private areas (used as a private residence occasionally) it is worth the extra money, with some stunning 16th century paintings and some more modern pieces from the likes of Goya.

As is common with many traditional palaces and grand houses in the south of Spain, the gardens and courtyard are well worth a visit. The ‘small garden’ is particularly beautiful, with a rustic charm and pond water feature that adds a sense of peace around the house. The courtyard is also stunning, offering a great opportunity for pictures.
