This 16th-century mansion, a block east of Calle Sierpes, has a rich collection of art and artisanry and a beautiful Renaissance-Mudéjar courtyard. The late Countess of Lebrija was an archaeologist, and she remodelled the house in 1914, filling many of the rooms with treasures from her travels.

Ancient Rome was the countess’s speciality, so the library is full of books on antiquity and there are plenty of remains from Roman Itálica, including some marvellous mosaics. If you want to see the top floor, with its Arabic, baroque and Spanish rooms, you must wait for the guided tour, but it’s worth it.
