Casa de los Piñelo - Seville

This building is a fine example of the Sevillian palace in the late Middle Ages. A small belvedere was inserted into the top of the façade in the 16th century. This tradition originated in Italy but became fashionable in Spain during the Renaissance. This elegant residence was owned by the Genoese banker Francisco Pinelo, who was Christopher Columbus' friend and associate. He therefore played a key role in organising Columbus' expeditions and in setting up relations with the New World, which spanned two centuries, from 1503 to 1717.
