Spain Getaways: San Telmo Palace In Seville


The city of Seville, in Andalusia, has the largest historic center in Europe and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. There are many well-known monuments and attractions to keep you busy for a couple of days on your visit to Seville, but you should also take some time to see San Telmo Palace, a baroque building dating from 1682.

San Telmo Palace is one of the most beautiful buildings in Seville. This impressive building, painted in bright red and dark yellow, covers an entire city block and it has a rectangular floor plan with four towers and a large central courtyard. The chapel of San Telmo Palace is an extraordinary example of Andalusian and Spanish art, with a single nave and five altarpieces.

Currently, San Telmo Palace is the seat of the Regional Government but it can be visited by guided tours on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free, but you must bring a valid proof of identification. Taking photos inside the building is not allowed, except in the chapel, and you can not wear pointed heels in some of the rooms.
