Marble Entrance Arch

The entrance to Casa Pilatos is from a grand Marble Entrance Arch. Built-in a typical Renaissance style, the arch was designed and created in 1529 by Antonio Maria Aprile for Don Fadrique. The three panels of the Jerusalem cross above the door symbolize Fadrquie’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land. 

Main Patio

With exquisite plaster-decorated arches, the Main Patio of Casa Pilatos is reminiscent of the Mudejar style. The main patio features an open patio surrounded by irregular-sized arches. The wider arches lead to doors whereas the narrower arches are in line with the windows of the Casa. 

Praetorian Hall

The Praetorian Hall of Casa Pilatos was built in the 1530s and was created as a result of the Renaissance-style widening of the courtyard by Don Fadrique. The Hall has retained all its original elements, which include elements such as Mudejar inlaid marquetry windows, and doors.
