Its a beautiful restoration, with two small galleries. One for local artists and one for Roman Art discovered in the various restoration projects around these once Capital of the Hispania Roman Empire.

A lovely building which is well looked after. There are several rooms with artefacts from different ages, dating back to the Roman era. Upstairs there are some beautiful mosaics which were found in Ecija and have been restored. There are audio guides available for use.

A lovely Baroque style

It's a shame they charge around 3 Euros to climb to the first floor to see the tower but the architecture was lovely and the outlet to the Plaza is typical in every part of Écija. Roman, French and Goth influence all over the place.

Ecija, known as the "frying pan of Andalucia" is a lovely place to stop off on way from Seville to Cordoba. Take the parking garage near Plaza de Espana to avoid frustration. Beautiful town, no crowds, welcoming staff at Palace. Fantastic audio visual of horses and horsemanship. Not as good as Fethard in Ireland. Enjoyed a tapas across the street

Ecija, the loveliest town in Andalucia nobody knows about

On the border of the province of Seville and Cordoba lies Ecija (pron: ess-ee-ha). Treat yourself to a visit if travelling nearby (hour's drive from Ronda, Cordoba or Seville).
The architecture, main square, beautiful little museum (Palace of Benameji) and about a dozen very large churches/ cathedrals each with exquisite mosaic spires and doors are open for respectful visitors without charge. Food near the museum is mainly open-air and is basic but very good and menu can be had for under 10 euro with a drink!
Just don't go in summer, Ecija is known as 'el sarten de Espana' (Spain's frying pan) with temperatures recorded at over 50c!
Lovely, lovely, town, Spain's Bruges but without mobs of tourists and dead cheap, not spoilt and not crowded, I just hope nobody read this and it stays that way.

A small museum, but with plenty of interesing pieces that span the generations of the town and give a great snapshot of the history. Special pieces are the mosaics and the Amazonm statue. Peaceful to wander around and free entry.

No Parking!
All we saw was the top of the towers as we struggled to find somewhere to park. Gave up in end and headed back out of town. Parking does not seem to be signposted at all but the important lesson for us was to research more thoroughly and not expect to be able to stop easily just because it is low season!!

Historic Building
7/2011 • Pariskunnat
The Palacio de Benameji was built in the 18th century with brick and marble. The portal is Baroque and shows movement with curves going in two directions. There are two corner towers. Today it houses the Museo Historico Municipal, a very good museum. Outstanding in the museum is a Roman mosaic tile floor with a motif of Bacchus. Ecija had many Roman palaces in the past. In the 18th century the kings were the ones who gave permission for building towers in palaces. King Carlos III passed through Ecija and stayed at the Palace of the Count of Valverde. The King was pleased and gave the count permission to build a tower. When the King returned after some time, he was surprised that the palace had two towers. He confronted the count, who responded that the King had given him permission to build one tower, but the other tower was his right because of his title and position. At least this is the legend.
