Palacio de las Dueñas was built in the 15th century as a home for Seville's nobility. It's home to large gardens, lemon trees, ceramic tiles and intricate archways. Filled with flowers and bright colors, it's an ideal place to spend a sunny Seville afternoon, according to past visitors. 
The charm of the Palacio de las Dueñas comes from its blend of Mudéjar and Gothic architecture as well as its serene atmosphere. While it boasts ornate decor similar to that found in the Real Alcázar, the Palacio de las Duenas doesn't attract the same busy crowds, which makes it a peaceful place to explore. Located in the Encarnación-Regina neighborhood of the city, the palace is easy to get to from the city center and a short walk from Metropol Parasol. 
A general ticket includes admission to the grounds for 10 euros (around $11); there are reduced rates for children, students and senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased online or at the ticket office. There are also audio guide services available for purchase. The palace opens at 10 a.m.; it closes at 8 p.m. April through September and at 6 p.m. from October to March.
