Casa de Pilatos, Sevilla
Casa de Pilatos. The first Marquis of Tarifa departed on a Grand Tour of Europe and the Holy Land in 1518. Two years later he returned, enraptured by the architectural and decorative wonders of High Renaissance Italy. he spent the rest of his life fashioning a new aesthetic, which was very influential. His palace in Seville was called the House of Pilate because it was thought to resemble Pontius Pilate's home in Jerusalem and later became a luxurious showcase for the new style.
