The Briones Palace is a building that has been handed down from family to family over the centuries and whose walls have certainly witnessed a great deal of history.
It is located on Ramon y Cajal street, once called Palomar street, next to the site where the Saint Joseph convent once stood.
It is surrounded by a crenellated wall – one with small gaps called “crenels” on top of the wall – overflowing with bougainvillea, jasmine and other plants that frame the entrance courtyard, where the true facade of the building appears. The main door, made of brick with a large arch in the Elizabethan style inscribed on an alfiz, gives way to the open space where, in the old days, horse-drawn carriages would stop to allow their passengers to alight.
The construction of this palace-house dates to the first half of the 16th century. This historical building, structured around two courtyards and a large main entrance, corresponds to the prototype of a Renaissance palace with elements of the Mudejar tradition that is very common in Carmona.
Points of interest
The worthy heir to a long building tradition with centuries of experience behind it, this building is perfectly conditioned to withstand the intense heat.
An ivy-covered shady interior patio, to which of large awnings are added in the summer, reinforces the sensation of freshness, making it the ideal setting to host the summer courses of the Pablo de Olavide University, whose headquarters are housed in this magnificent building.
