Palacio de las Dueñas – Casa de Alba

During your visit to Seville, the iconic Palacio de las Dueñas should not be missed. The palace is also known as Casa de Alba and has no less than 500 years of history. Since it opened in 2016, you can discover a lot in this beautiful palace, such as courtyards, gardens and majestic rooms. Casa Palacio de las Dueñas was built in the late 15th century, a period when there was a lot of economic growth in the city and other monuments, such as the Real Alcazar and Casa de Pilatos, were also significantly expanded.

Palacio de las Dueñas has its name from the monastery of Santa María de las Dueñas. The monastery was adjacent to the palace, but was demolished in 1868. Initially the palace was owned by the Pineda family, but after a family tragedy they were forced to sell the house to pay a ransom for an imprisoned family member. After the marriage of the 5th Marchioness of Villanueva del Río with the 4th Duke of Alba, the palace is also known in Seville as Casa de Alba. In the past, this Alba palace was visited by famous figures such as Jacqueline Kennedy, Rainier of Monaco, Grace Kelly and Alfonso XIII.
