Palacio de San Telmo Tips (5)

Saint Thelmo's Palace-Palacio de San Telmo

This is the present seat of the Presidency of the Andalusian Regional Government. It was built in the 17th and 18th centuries in Baroque style, as a naval training academy. The façade is one of the most beautiful examples of churrigueresco art. The site has rectangular shape and two stories, with corner towers similar to pavilions, central courtyard and chapel. On becoming the residence of the Dukes of Montpensier, this palace was subjected to a large renovation which resulted in the construction of the northern façade which was dedicated to a series of respected Sevillians by means of sculptures of natural size, crafted by Romantic Antonio Susillo. The palace was transfered to the Church to be the seminary.
A previous telephonic appointment is needed to visit the building.

Esta es la actual sede de la Presidencia de la Junta de Andalucía (Gobierno Regional de Andalucía). Fue construido en los siglos XVII y XVIII en estilo barroco para academia de entrenamiento naval. La fachada es uno de los más bellos ejemplos de arte churrigueresco. Pasando a ser la residencia de los Duques de Montpensier el palacio se sometió a importantes reformas que resultaron en la construcción de la fachada norte, que se dedicó a una serie de sevillanos respetados a través de una serie de esculturas a tamaño natural, esculpidas por el romántico Antonio Susillo. El palacio fue donado a la Iglesia para ser seminario.
Se necesita cita previa telefónica para visitar el edificio

Palacio de San Telmo

I walked by this beautiful palace on my first day in Sevilla and had to stop and stare at the beautiful Baroque details. I asked the guard if it was possible to visit and he shook his head, "no," however, the architecture can easily be appreciated from the outside.

Palacio de san Telmo

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.
