Deep in those narrow, atmospheric streets of old Seville, lives the Casa de la Pilatos. Nothing to do with Pontius Pilate (according to some but not all sources), this is the family home of one of the oldest and most respected families in Seville.
With royal connections, plenty of cash and education (even for the women), the family have spent the last five hundred years or so building and tending to this house that to foreigners seems more like a palace.
Downstairs features engraved walls, intricate tiles with luminous colours and a central, soothing fountain. Upstairs houses a lot of very important paintings in that sort of darkish brown that usually sends me to sleep.
The gardens, however, showcase the best of Andalucia.Finally, it’s also soothing to realise that I’m not the only one in love with taking photos…
