Palacio de las Dueñas

13 Mar 2023

El Palacio de las Dueñas is one of the most beautiful and decorated palaces in Seville. Built in the 15th century and now owned by the famous house of Alba (for 400 years). Since 2016 visitors have been allowed to look inside. The palace has beautiful gardens, halls, and chapels. All packed with the Alba family's extensive art collection. The style ranges from Gothic to Moors to the Renaissance, with local influences in the bricks, roof tiles, tiles, whitewashed walls, and pottery. These palaces also show how rich noble families have settled in Seville during the golden era of the 15th and 16th centuries. Originally it was built by the Pineda family, one of the noble power stations of that time. The story tells that Explorer Americo Vespucio married here his Sevillian love Maria Cerezo (around 1500) On October 5, 2011, Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart, 18th Duchess of Alba married her third husband here. The palace became a national monument on 3 June 1931. This palace is open every day from 10:00 to 18:00. Nice tip, on Monday you have free access after 16:00 ;) To this day it is one of the most visited monuments in Seville. That's why this palace is definitely not to be missed as a stop on our tapas tour!
