Lebrija Palace
The Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija is a beautiful Sevillian residence well known for its architecture, courtyards, artworks and mosaics which cover many of the walls, floors and staircases.

The Countess de Lebrija was a keen traveller and collector of antiquities and amassed an impressive and varied collection of items which now fill this wonderful palace.

The palace contains several items from the former Roman city Italica and in so doing has preserved a variety of impressive mosaics which can be enjoyed throughout the property, along with other archaeological and historical items including artwork, ceramics and sculptures.

One of the most impressive mosaics can be found within the centre of one of the patio's and features the image of the Roman God Pam, with the patio itself equally attractive as it is surrounded by a series of decoratively carved arches. There are many more mosaics within the house as the Countess was a keen archaeologist and collected many items during her extensive travelling so there are several unique items within the museum.

The ground floor and the upstairs are open to the public with the upper floor being open by guided tour only and where you can enjoy the Countess's private chapel, impressive library, dining hall and other residential rooms which are full of furniture, artwork, ceramics, ornaments and statues.

The Palace is located within the city centre approximately 400 meters north of the Plaza Nueva along Calle Cuna, 8, 41004 Seville.
