The Archbishop's Palace of Seville reopens its doors. For several years the building remained closed to the public, but now we are lucky to be able to enter. The visits will be divided into two Saturdays of each month with four shifts. The first shift at 10:00, the second shift at 11:00, the third shift at 12:00 and the last shift at 13:00.
Tickets can be purchased at the Diocesan Bookstore and the first shift on the second Saturday of the month you can buy tickets for free. For other shifts, the ticket price is € 6.
All the visits will be guided and you will be able to see the dependencies, the patios and the works that they lodge inside. The visit lasts an estimated 45 minutes.
The Archbishop's Palace
It is currently the residence of the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Seville. It is located in the Plaza de la Virgen de los Reyes, next to the Giralda.
The facade of the main doorway is of Baroque style built in the 18th century. In Placentines street we can find a second door less spectacular than the other. Inside the building we can find a majestic marble staircase built in the seventeenth century. The stairwell is covered with the paintings of Juan de Espinal.
Passing the threshold of the cover are two courtyards of Mannerist style of the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Behind the second patio is the dependences of the Archbishopric.
Inside we can also find both the main hall whose ceiling is frescoed with 60 canvases and numerous sculptures and works by painters such as Zurbarán or Murillo.
