History

Roman Hispalis

Roman Hispalis

Roman Hispalis

Roman Seville had two main settlements, one dating back to the first century BC, around the year 69, when Caesar is thought to have come to the city at first. This is the hypothesis of the Republican city. But it must be recalled that the first reference to Rome is in the year 206 BC, when the Battle of llipa was fought and Italica was founded.

Mosaic of Neptune

Mosaic of Neptune

Extraordinary mosaic of vitreous and stone tesserae

This mosaic represents the god Neptune and his court of marine creatures, all in black and white, except the polychrome figure of the god. Neptune is represented with a trident, driving a biga, a two-horse carriage, drawn by hippocamps, a horse with fish-like hindquarters, and, around them, centaurs, a ram, a bull and other land animals.

Casa de Pilatos

Casa de Pilatos

A sublime collection

An old legend, originating from the time spent by Fadrique Enríquez de Ribera, the first Marquis of Tarifa, in the Holy Land, claims that this Palace is a copy of Pontius Pilate’s praetorium in Jerusalem. In the main patio there is a large statue of Pallas Athena, an original work by Phidias which the Romans took from Athens during war and was later given by Pope Pius V to Don Pedro de Ribera.
