Casa de Pilatos - Flagellation Chapel

Flagellation CHapel

Casa de Pilatos, like many palaces, has its own chapel. The oldest room in the palace, this has both Muslim and Christian elements, with a wide entrance arch finely decorated with Mudejar plasterwork. It has the only tile skirting board in the palace, and one of a few in Seville made using the cuerda seca (dry string) technique.  On top of the altar is a rounded piece of a 4th Century Christian statue brought from Rome. This shows a representation of the Good Shepherd from the pagan times of Hermes that depict the sacrificial sheep (Crioforo).

In the centre of the chapel is a column which represents the flagellation of Jesus Christ, giving this chapel its unusual name.
