Palacio de San Telmo, Sevilla: 5 reviews and 10 photos


This beautiful Baroque Palace was built in 1682 for use as a marine college which trained maritime officers, navigators and pilots. In 1848 the Duke of Montpensier purchased the palace and it continued as a royal palace until 1893. Part of the grounds later became Maria Luisa Park named after the Princess Maria Luisa Fernanda de Oraleans. In 1901 the palace was turned into a seminary.

The focal point is a wonderful ornate entrance which was created by Figueroa and incorporates the statues of San Telmo who was the patron saint of sailors and for whom the palace is named. Also included are statues of San Hermenegildo and San Fernando. Today the Palace houses the presidential headquarters of the regional government ? Junta de Andalucia.
