Palace of San Telmo (Palacio de San Telmo) Tours

Today’s it’s the seat of the Andalusian government, but once upon a time, this grand, rusty-red and golden-yellow building served as a royal palace. That wasn’t its original destiny, however: built in the late 1600s, it was meant to serve as a seminary school for the University of Navigators, and is thus named after the patron saint of navigators, San Telmo. Later it was purchased by the royals, after which Princess Maria Luisa donated much of its lands to the city of Seville, hence why the grand nearby park bears her name (she ultimately donated the entire palace to the church).

Nowadays, the palatial building belongs to the government of Andalucia, and has ever since 1989. Its exterior alone is quite impressive, as it is noted for its elaborate baroque façade, and a stretch of statues featuring historical figures, which is situated along Avenida de Palos de Frontera. The interior is nothing short of impressive, either, with its fancy gilt chapel, and ballroom-turned-reception-room called the Salon of Mirrors.

Practical Info

The palace is located within walking distance of many of Seville’s most popular sights, and is therefore an ideal place to visit on a bike or walking tour. Note that the palace’s interior can only be visited by guided tour, which must be scheduled in advance. Call or email to inquire about opening times and the opportunity to schedule a visit  (+34 955 001 010 or visitassantelmo@juntadeandalucia.es).
