La Casa de Pilatos (Pilate's House) 

La Casa de Pilatos (Pilate's House) 

 

One of the most iconic areas of the city - and perhaps the least known by those who visit it for the first time - Casa de Pilatos (Pilate's House), a palace that combines Italian Renaissance with the Spanish Mudejar style, whose construction dates back to the 15th century. For several years it has been declared a Cultural Interest and Heritage Site of Spain.

Its name, albeit similar, is obviously not related to Pontius Pilate. Nonetheless, the son of the builder of the palace and who completed his work, Fadrique Enríquez de Ribera, on a trip to Jerusalem discovered that the distance between the house of Pontius Pilate and Golgotha ​​was exactly the same as that between the newly built palace and the Cruz del Campo. Subsequently a dozen stations of the Vía Crucis were plotted, by Catholic tradition, to unite both places.

Its impressive gardens in the heart of the city of Seville and the tiles that embed the different rooms, along with the architecture, statues and fountains found here are a must-see for anyone visiting the city. It is considered a clear example of a typical Andalusian palace where major films have been shot like Lawrence of Arabia (1962); 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992); The Kingdom of Heaven (2005), and Knight and Day (2009).
It is located in Plaza de Pilatos, 1 and can be visited in just over an hour and a half.

  

 

The visit of the whole house costs €10 and just the ground floor is €8 (audio-guides ae available in different languages).
