About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 - Cozy, Quiet Penthouse in City Center with Roof

Located across the XV century palace named “Pilate´s House” (you can enjoy the view of its beautiful gardens with authentic Roman sculptures and antiques from your own rooftop terrace with the illuminated Giralda Tower and many other Church steeples as a backdrop) and next to the Casa Imperial (a XVI century palace) you cannot beat this location if you want to be in the center of Seville’s historic district. This area of the old quarter is made up of a maze of old narrow cobble-stoned streets, each one leading to a new gem: restaurants, bars, and fabulous antique palaces, some which have been recently restored make up the atmosphere of what many consider to be the nicest area of the historical center of Seville, and also near neighborhood markets if you want to immerse yourself in the “real” Seville.

The apartment is located on a very quiet street in one of the most typical quarters, with a mix of stately, historic houses, plazas and churches. This part of the city provides a perfect insight of everyday life in Seville, offering a more authentic experience without sacrificing proximity to the major monuments and cultural sights. As for gastronomy, every bar and restaurant in the neighborhood offers a wealth of history for viewing while one enjoys tasting traditional Spanish cuisine.


There is a harmonious blend of Gothic-Mudejar, Renaissance and Romantic architecture right outside your door. It is close to the bus lines and main entrances of the city center, although there is enough within walking distance to keep you busy for days (the Alcazar, the Cathedral, the archeological city remains at the Metropol-Parasol or “Seta”, the old Jewish Quarter, the Santa Cruz pedestrian center, the Riverwalk, the Torre del Oro…). The oldest plaza in the city, the Salvador, is a few minutes from your location – the Roman Agora was located here and you can find the original columns as you walk through the pedestrian streets.

The penthouse has a maximum capacity for four people: one bedroom with a double bed and a comfortable double sofa bed in the living room, with lots of natural light through the unobstructed windows in every room and a wonderful terrace. There is an open kitchen fully equipped with stove top, microwave, refrigerator, freezer and clothes washing machine; an upgraded bathroom with a shower, central air conditioning and WIFI.

There is a public car park at Calle Catalina 2, at 500 meters (.25 miles – walking distance), closest shops and grocery at 10 m, restaurants at 20 m, bus stops at 50 m, railway station at 2 km (1.2 miles).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in Seville, and I know the city like the back of my hand. Although I moved to the United States, my husband, two children and I still visit a couple of times every year because my entire family of 10 brothers and sisters are all there! I decided to buy my own place rather than staying at my parents, and found this little jewel :) I searched high and low, with location and quiet foremost in my mind.

Why the Owner Chose Seville, Sevilla, Spain:
Location, location, location! Although it is in the very center of the old city, which tends to be very dark because of the narrow streets, the fact that this is the only attic on the top floor provides as much light as if I was in a chalet at the top of a hill - but instead of a forest of trees, I am surrounded by church steeples and palace gardens! I went to school nearby and used to walk by the Pila del Pato and the narrow Callejon to walk to my aunts, and it felt like I was going back in time! Since then I have always dreamed of living there.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You can't beat the view! Sitting in the terrace and listening to the doves cooing in the magnolia trees from the neighboring Casa de Pilatos Palace, the church bells calling time, and the sun shinning among the rooftops, with the Giralda presiding, as you sip a glass of wine... there is nothing better in the world, in my opinion! The fact that you can be anywhere on foot in just a few minutes (the Cathedral, the Alcazar, the Antiquarium, the Fresh Market or any of the magnificent local restaurants) is also a unique benefit of the location.
