Expert review of Casa de la Condesa de Lebrija

Andalusian palace hidden away in the centre of town.

Something of a hidden gem, the 16th century Lebrija palace is tucked away in a shopping street in the centre of Seville. Although not very large there is plenty inside to delight the eye. The building itself is a typical Andalucian palace built around an interior courtyard, but with many of the floors paved with mosaics rescued from the Roman city of Italica. The collections, which are mainly the work of the then Countess, Regla Manjón Mergelina, in the early 20th century, are an eclectic mix that includes not only many finds from Italica, but also Greek and Persian statues, Etruscan and other pottery, paintings, tapestries and jewellery.

Price advice: 

4 euros, lower floor only. 8 euros for the complete experience.
