Photos: Palace of San Telmo

The Palace of San Telmo is a unique, baroque-style building in the heart of Sevilla. You can’t resist stopping outside for its red walls and richly decorated facade. The portal itself is a work of art that took three generations (in 70 years) to complete.

Yes, you can visit this palace but I wasn’t able to go inside because it was closed on a Sunday. I actually didn’t plan to be here. I passed by this amazing building on my way to Plaza de Espana from Catedral de Seville.
