Construction of this palace began in 1492. Today, part of the palace is a museum and is open to the public. There is a separate wing where the present Duchess of Medinaceli lives with her descendants and family. The palace has many gardens, patios, fountains, and salons. The patios contain many Roman statues. Everywhere on the first floor one will find Roman mosaic floors. The walls are covered with beautiful ceramic tile in many different Mudejar styles.

It's now Monday from 3 pm, changed from Wednesday according to ticket office staff. So didn't go in as I'd been before. Still worthwhile at 8 euro.

This palace is beautiful, but do plan your visit, because it closes at 14.00h and does not open anymore. It is situated in the lovely area of Santa Cruz.
