Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Seville / Seville / Museo Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija
Decorated with pieces of other buildings and artwork from all over the world, Museo Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija is one of the finest houses in Seville. Some of the tiles used to piece together the many mosaics were retrieved from an abandoned convent, and a coffered ceiling and a frieze were reclaimed from a 16th-century palace. Although it is commonly called a palace, the building was actually once the residence of a countess, not a king or queen. Countess Lebrija collected the artifacts that are displayed on the ground floor. Guided tours of the upper rooms showcase ornamented walls and furniture. These take place daily and can be booked the day of your visit.

We knew that the upper floor of the Palace is not accessible to people with reduced mobility as is the case with my wife, but we hoped that Rubens's work would be exhibited below. At the entrance ticket office to the Palace we were confirmed that the exhibition was below and that the price per person was 12 euros, as the visit to the exhibition was integrated with the rooms of the Palace. As in almost all monuments there are discounts or free entry costs for people with disabilities, with the addition that we could not access the upper floor, we asked if we had any reduction in the price, but we were told no. Still we were going to gladly pay the 24 euros of the visit, when, when delivering the ticket money, the girl who took care of us indicated that the wheelchair we had to leave it at the entrance, because the floors of the Palace were covered with Roman mosaics that I could are damaged by the wheels. We were left with a fool's face. What did you expect my wife to pay a ticket so that she could not access the Palace because her chair couldn't move on her floor? On the other hand, if the value of the mosaics, with good judgment, advises denying the transit of a wheelchair on them, why is it not also prevented from that of the many visitors with shoes, perhaps more harmful than the rubber of a wheel, hard sole or with reinforced heels two with materials of consistent hardness? I believe that the historical-artistic value of mosaics and other materials and pieces that it treasures of the Palace of Lebrija should be properly protected, with solutions that free them from the physical contact of visitors such as a transparent walkway. This would prevent the discriminated exclusion of persons who are already suffering a terrible exclusion by disability and the integrity of unrepeatable parts would be preserved. It is also the preservation of the Andalusian artistic heritage, an obligation as referred to in article 14 of the Law on Historical Heritage of Andalusia.
Fantastic! A gem among all of the extraordinary buildings and collections in Seville. Guadalupe, who runs the place, is charming and well-informed, too. The Countess (died at 87 in 1999 when the house was opened to the public) had exceptional good taste and willingness to put her rare collection of art (Moorish, Spanish and, above all, Roman) first. Even redesigning rooms to house the items better (like perfectly preserved ancient Roman mosaic floors). Must not be missed while visiting Seville!
It's nice, but not worth for the price you pay. There are more interesting, bigger and more significant things in Seville you can see for half of this price.
