Casa de la Condesa de Lebrija

Casa de la Condesa de Lebrija (10)

This mansion is a perfect of example of palace life in Seville. It covers a 2000 m2 area and was built in two parts, with winter quarters upstairs and summer quarters below. This Mudejar-style palace dates to the 16th century, when it was built as a Sevillian manor. 

The austere façade that you see today dates from the 16th century, and though it is not particularly eye-catching, the truly important part of this palace is its interior decor. The mosaic in the main courtyard is a good example of the grandiose ornamentation and, undoubtedly the most striking one. The central medallion of this mosaic, discovered in 1914, depicts the god Pan, along with other mythological scenes. 

On the palace’s lower floor you will find both Roman and mediaeval objects, but in order to go upstairs and view the magnificent library and glorious tiles, you’ll have to hire a guide. Be sure to pay special attention to the Mudejar coffered ceilings over the staircase, which come from the palace of the Dukes of Arcos in Marchena.
