An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Palatial House of the Marquis of San Martín

605
4

Currently, this palace belongs to the Marquis of Caltójar. It has been handed down from one generation to the next since the times of King Fernando III, “the Saint”, who conquered Seville.

The decoration of this perfectly preserved palatial house has remained unchanged since the last third of the 19th century, providing insight into what life was like in the past. It has a large 15th-century Mudejar courtyard and six additional courtyards, various halls, a swimming pool and stables. 

Architecturally speaking, the original appearance has remained virtually intact over the years, except for the decoration of the main entrance. This stately home, of unquestionable Muslim origin, has two distinct zones: the country house, with stables, sheds and a typical Mudejar courtyard, and, the main house, with several rooms called Blue and Red Rooms, both decorated in Elizabethan style with panels and carpets imported from France. The architectural structure preserves Arab, Roman and Mudejar traces.
