Built in the 16th century, it is the most outstanding example of civil palatial architecture in Sevilla. It integrates, in a splendid way, the Renaissance, Mudéjar, and Baroque styles. The humanistic character of the building makes it a prototype of a Renaissance palace highlighted by its fascinating interior and some of the classic sculptures and marbles it has.
This palace was born in the last quarter of the 15th century as a consequence of the union of Enriquez and Ribera lineages. Throughout the 16th century, as a consequence of the intense relationship that its most relevant members maintain with Italy, it experiments great changes and assumes the role of a sieve through which the new ways and tastes of Renaissance enter Sevilla.
Reforms carried out in the mid 19th century, to please the Romantic taste, compliment its picturesque look: a harmonic synthesis of the Gothic- Mudéjar, the Renaissance and the Romanticism.
