The spectacular Lebrija Palace (Palacio de Lebrija) or Palace of the Countess of Lebrija (Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija) is located in the famous Cuna street, in Seville, parallel to the equally popular Sierpes street and just ten minutes walk from the Palacio de las Dueñas. It was a manor house in the sixteenth century, but in 1901 the countess acquired it and remodelled it to expose her collection of antiques. It is finally in 1999 when the palace is open to the public as a museum.
You should visit the Lebrija Palace at least once in your life; not only because of its historical value, but also because of its aesthetic value. Floors made with Roman marbles, tiles from the sixteenth century, arches with marble columns, Greco-Roman busts… An extraordinary collection with elements from different eras and styles. We must highlight the Roman mosaic found in the main courtyard, one of the reasons why the Palace of the Countess of Lebrija is considered by the Marquis of Lozolla as the “best paved house-palace in Europe”.
The building consists of two floors: on the ground floor, there are several lounges and patios, where you can admire archaeological remains and antique collections of the countess. Upstairs, you will see the rooms of the family, preserved just as they lived. There is also an appreciable library, with more than four thousand books. When buying the tickets, you can choose between visiting a single floor or both.
