La Casa de Luca Tena (the house of Luca Tena),
A Palace to Contemplate Along your Walk through Seville

 The city of Seville is full of buildings of great beauty. Discover the regionalist art while observing the exteriors of La Casa de Luca Tena.

La Casa de Luca Tena is a building that is part of the regionalist architecture. It is located on Avenida de la Palmera, in Seville, very close to the Heliopolis neighbourhood.

The palace was built in 1926, the work of the architect Aníbal González for his cousin, the journalist and businessman Torcuato Luca de Tena and Álvarez Ossorio. As in other works of the regionalist style, the presence of architectural elements of historical tradition stands out against the rejection of innovative elements or revolutionary lines.

The combination of half-point arches and the presence of baseboards and tiles is a representative characteristic, a fact that reflects the move towards tradition. Its appearance is reminiscent of other works of the architect such as Plaza de España, also in Seville.

Its most outstanding façade is that of its east side, which can be seen from the Avenue. Here you will find the portico based on half-point arches made out of cut and carved brick, on marble columns of composite order.

La Casa de Luca Tena cannot be visited despite its good state of preservation. If you spend the night in our charming hotel in Seville, it is a short walk to discover this beautiful building.
