About the book

Constructed between the 15th and 16th centuries, Casa de Pilatos is the largest private palace in Seville. Owing to its singular design, in which elements of Mudejar and Renaissance style combine, this site is considered one of the most striking monuments in Spain.

The origin of the Casa de Pilatos goes back to the 1483, the year in which Pedro Enríquez, Chief Governor of Andalucia, built his residence on an old property of Islamic influence located in the centre of Seville. With the passing of the years, the palace was subject to various extensions, incorporating new spaces with decorative details in tune with the aesthetic preferences of each period.

This book dedicated to Casa de Pilatos, published by Dosde, shows in a comprehensive way the origins and the historical evolution of this masterpiece of Mudejar and Renaissance art. When turning its pages the reader will discover the role the palace's different inhabitants carried out, as well as the more characteristic corners of this unique monument, converted into one of the major icons of Seville.

    Educational and complete

    They seem to be, for those who are lovers of art and architecture, particularly the layman, the best books that I know of to be informed in a very visual and simple way, with extraordinary infographics of famous buildings. Maybe the only criticism that I could make is that, at times, there could be less pictures with an amplification of the content of the book with regards to the historical context of the construction of the buildings, architect's biography, etc. I understand that the book needs to be easy to read, educational and visual and not overload the reader with “academic” text and I believe it is managed very well but the text could be padded out a little bit more.
