    KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DUCHESS ALBA HOUSE

    The Casa de Alba or Palacio de Dueñas, located in the neighborhood of La Feria and built between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, is the former residence of the Duchess of Alba. Its architecture is splendid and is influenced by Gothic-Mudejar and Renaissance styles. Its name comes from the neighboring Cistercian monastery that preceded it: the monastery of Santa María de las Dueñas. Its origin is ancient and it has a strong link with famous names in the history of Spain, such as the Casa Alba or the Pineda family.

    In fact, the first buildings of what later became the Palacio de las Dueñas were built by Juan de Pineda and later expanded by his son Pedro de Pineda. A plaque on the façade reminds us that the great writer and poet Antonio Machado was born here in 1875 and spent the first years of his life here.

    AN IMPRESSIVE PALACE

    The Palacio de Dueñas is very impressive and is made up of a series of buildings and courtyards, each more beautiful than the other. It is one of the Sevillian palaces that experienced the aesthetic transformations of Renaissance architecture, but without abandoning the Gothic-Mudejar and Plateresque styles typical of the region.

    The coat of arms of the Duchy of Alba can be seen on the main arch at the entrance of the palace. In the garden, which is a former riding arena, there are many orange and palm trees. There are many porticos and pilasters, but also many columns and arches. The main altar of the palace is decorated with tiles with metallic reflections typical of Sevillian ceramics of the 16th century.
