Palacio de las Dueñas, in Seville, was the private residence of Sevillian stately noble families until it became property of the House of Alba. Its great historical, artistic and architectural value leave its visitors speechless.
Palacio de las Dueñas or Palace of the Dukes of Alba, in Seville, was the private residence of important Sevilian noble families. In the early seventeenth century, it was owned by the Spanish noble house House of Alba. The majestic palace is composed of a set of Andalusian patios and buildings and even a chapel inside. There are many different styles, such as Gothic or Renaissance.
The art collection is one of its main attractions, as there are nearly one thousand five hundred works. This Palace stands out not only because of its great historical, artistic and architectural value, but also because of having been home to Cayetana de Alba, a well-known figure among Spaniards. We must also mention that the Spanish poet Antonio Machado was born here. You can make photos along the same halls and gardens where illustrious figures such as the Empress Eugenia de Montijo, Alfonso XIII, Jacqueline Kennedy or Grace Kelly once had a great time.
