Lebrija Palace, or Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija
The Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija is the palace of the Countess of Lebrija. The Lebrija Palace has its origins in the 15th and 16th centuries and was built in the Mudejar style. At the time it served as a mansion. For example, the ground floor was used for living in the summer and the upper floor in the winter. The structure of this palace, as well as the facade, with a garden in the middle, is typical Sevillian style.
