Hacienda de San Antonio

Hacienda de San Antonio, a neoclassical-style estate from the mid-18th century. It is virtually attached to Nuestra Señora de la Antigua Church. Indeed, it is thought that the two buildings have been connected for many years. This hacienda was one of many properties of the famous Count of Santa Barbara, who was a senator for the province of Seville from 1902 to 1903. It has been kept in excellent condition to this day. 

The entrance to the complex is through a rather austere doorway, decorated only with a row of three merlons with two smaller ones at each end. The door opens onto a work yard. At the end of this yard is the entrance to the stately two-storey residence with a large lookout-tower with a rooftop terrace. Both the house and the lookout-tower are crowned with a pyramidal battlement.
