Seville: Casa de Pilatos

You may be surprised to learn that I did more than eat my way through Seville?! In between meals I walked a lots and did some proper sightseeing. Although I usually skip some of the usual tourist attractions (at least if they involve a long queue) but enjoy the smaller, less crowded ones. IMG_9724.JPG

Like this Andalusian palace built in the 1500s – Casa de Pilatos. It’s a vision of statues, mosaics and general grandeur.

Most walls are tiled like these, with small tiles making up lovely patterns in greens, blues and yellows.

The gardens are just as grand, with low cut ledges framing the trees.

And the most amazing bougainvillas in bloom.

Look at the details outside too. Not a petal out of place.
