The house occupies three quarters of the block where it is located. It is distributed around two large patios, the halt and the main patio, also having an extensive garden, other smaller patios, transit spaces of great beauty and commercial premises, open to the street, which occupy the primitive service areas.
Splendid house that constitutes an invaluable example of Andalusian baroque architecture. The house preserves almost completely the primitive distribution of the old dependencies and responds with clarity to the typological structure of the palaces-houses of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries of Seville, not having undergone transformations of interest during its history.
Its construction was ordered at the end of the 17th century by Viceroy Antonio Bucarelli, Marquis of Valle-Hermoso, whose family, of viceroys and general captains, was historically linked to one of the times of greatest splendor in New Spain.
After being the residence of the Bucarelli, this house would pass into the hands of the Counts of Santa Coloma. Currently, inhabited by its owners in seasons, its state of conservation seems good.
The halt has two areas, one covered, whose interior façade includes in its composition a Serlian theme, and another one that locates the stable of the stables to its right.
The main patio, of two floors, presents arcade in its four facades, with marble columns with mounds on which they turn round arches. On the ground floor, the spandrels are decorated with red avitolated bricks, reminiscent of the patio of the Hospital de los Venerables, and on the upper floor, the openings are closed with balconies.
The main staircase of the house is two sections and is located on one of the fronts of the courtyard, dividing with one of the walls of the halt. The rooms of the palace are installed in the bays that make up the patio and in the front.
Patio and halt are articulated in one of its angles, so that the entrance gate to the house from the halt - located to the left of the front wall - gives way to one of the porticoed galleries of the patio.
Among the smaller patios stands the one next to the garden, from which is separated by a portico of columns and semicircular arches. On one of the fronts of the patio there are two superimposed stairs behind a wall with circular openings.
The main facade is divided into streets by overlapping pilasters, with windows or simulated holes in each one of them. The cover gives access to the halt and is flanked by Corinthian pilasters that support the cornice on which the main balcony rests, profusely decorated with moldings that make up the coat of arms.
