Palacio de la Condesa de Lebrija

8 Calle Cuna

The wealthy Countess of Lebrija bought this 16th-century palace in 1901 and renovated it to incorporate her extensive collection of Roman artifacts, amassed over years of travel and participation in archaeological digs. The ground floor and central courtyard include beautiful mosaic pavements and truly exquisite statuary. The guided tour of the upper floors, highly recommended, includes a visit to her extensive library and residential areas, filled with other eclectic styles that interested her: Mudejar (the style of the Moors who remained after the Christian reconquest), Spanish Renaissance and Baroque, among them.
