The Palace of the Adelantados Mayores (governors) of Andalusia, better known as the Casa de Pilatos, was chiefly built between the 15th and 16th centuries. The palace springs from the union of the Enríquez and Ribera families and is still occupied by the ducal Medinaceli family. It is one of the city´s most glorious mansions.
Located in the historical part of Seville city centre, the successive purchases of houses and sites by the Enríquez de Ribera family resulted in the gradual addition of drawing rooms, courtyards and gardens, making it the biggest private residence in Seville and an ideal setting for the new ways of life and social customs of the elite of a city graced with the privilege of being the capital of the greatest overseas empire ever known.
Designated a National Monument in 1931, this palace is a delicate combination of late-medieval Gothic and Mudejar tradition and the innovations of the Renaissance, which were introduced in Seville on account of the privileged relationship of the members of the Enríquez de Ribera family with Italy.
