The history of the Guardiola Palace House goes back to the nineteenth century, in full romanticism Sevillano, when D. Andres Parlade and Sanchez de Quiros, Count of Aguiar, Regional Delegate of Fine Arts and Delegado-Director of excavations of Italica, the build commands.

 

According to A. Villar Movellán, in his book Architecture of Regionalism in Seville, 1900-1935, “the Guardiola Palace House is a model home in many ways, including being archetypal style of the Sevillian Regionalism as would be understood, thus anticipating in twenty years formulating this concept “and continues,” this building would be for Regionalism, relatively speaking, it was the home of Victor Horta Tassel for Art Nouveau, or the Café restaurant exposure of 1888 in Barcelona for the Catalan Modernism, i.e. a primitive”.

 

It has all the characteristics of the manor houses of the time, being accessed through the patio hall, on one side the courtyard of horses and on the other the housing, which houses the main courtyard, terrace, garden, lounges and other facilities.

 

The house was purchased by a businessman, farmer and rancher D. Salvador Guardiola Fantoni, moving in 1945 to live with his family, his heirs being the current owners.

 

Guardiola Palace House is located in the historic center of Seville, and is well connected with taxi, metro and tram, as well as public parking.
