House of Pilate

Local name: Casa de Pilatos

The Casa de Pilatos Palace is the residence of the princes of Medinaceli. The building is an interesting mix of Italian Renaissance style and Mudéjar characteristic for Spain. The facade is decorated with colorful azulejos tiles. The palace is surrounded by well-kept and charming gardens. In 1931, the building was declared a National Monument. Inside the palace, you can also see works of art from the 16th-19th centuries, in particular by Francisco Pachec, Sebastiano del Piombo, Francisco Goiy, Luca Giordano and Giuseppe Recco.

Casa de Pilotos was built in the 16th century. Over the next centuries it underwent several modernization works. The name of the palace refers to Pilate's House and its connections with the Holy Way of the Cross. The rooms in the building also have names related to the Passion. This type of name comes from Fadrique Enríquez de Rivera, who was inspired by his pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
