DISCOVER PALACIO DE PORTOCARRERO, ITS GARDENS AND SENSATIONS, A STROLL THROUGH TIME AND AN UNFORGETABLE EXPERIENCE
The Alcázar Palacio de Portocarrero (Portocarrero Fortress Palace) declared of Cultural Interest, is the gem of Palma del Rio. It is the most important monument and origin of the city. It is also a real palace, which is inhabited, a universe in itself, because it connects an amazing route to all five senses: culture, art, history and the nature of the site.
A REAL UNIVERSE
Huddled within the walls constructed by the Almohad Arabs, there is a treasury of Roman and Arab remains inside, including mosaics, sculptures, tapestries and furniture belonging to those times, the exhibition areas, the corner from the film “El Reino de los Cielos” (The Kingdom of Heaven), the courtyards and gardens with a citric collection in a centennial area (Museo Vivo de la Naranja = Live Orange Museum), rooms and a spectacular Gala Banquet Hall, where Gran Capitan’s wedding celebrated… as well as the possibility of seeing an exhibition of quotidian suits and the artist’s studio on the top floor of the house.
WHY VISIT US
Because it is a surprising visit seen from the “slow” philosophy, a pleasant and unforgettable experience for the whole family, which is not included in typical circuits. It is somewhere where you can feel the magic by walking around this ancient house, the melting pot of civilizations since the Roman Era.
The whole family (and your pet) will be able to enjoy the ritual walk, discovering a real palace, from the inside, with its history and secrets.
Because we love sharing culture and showing you this gem, which was hidden and has been rescued from the ruins and started shining like a torch again.
Because we also give a guided visit in Spanish, English or French, wine tasting visits, night times, Bullfighting visit, business meetings, dinners and wedding celebrations of course, both inside of the palace as well as in its gardens.
