It is a huge place, with enormous rooms, lovely patios with fountains, and really pleasant gardens. Lots of great mosaics and moorish architectural touches in the old palace. You need to allow enough time to really appreciate the whole thing, and be prepared to spend a lot of time just enjoying the gardens.

Bigger than it looks from the outside. Good views and lots of rooms to explore. Tourist information on the ground floor

If you kind of person who likes just to stare at beauty of passed ages, well then, you will adore it. But if you like action, or act, or be involved, then this will be quite boring for a high price. But still mix of cultures is impressive! Maybe it is better to thing about nice photoshoot inside?.. Up to... More

The alcazar towers over the town, but makes a good vantage point with the walls etc. Lovely to walk around

Amazing monument dating back from Roman times. Just to think of what this fortress witnessed over the centuries is astonishing! Entry is only at 2€ through a great tourist information office. Take a free leaflet and take your time to read it before entering other parts of the Alcazar. There is a documentary movie about Carmona's history in one of... More

There is an excellent tourist information centre in the ground floor of the tower. The gateway is best viewed from outside first and then climb the various sets of steps to the roof of the tower. There is a small entrance fee, about €2 from memory. The exhibition on the top floor is very good and the views from the... More

It is such a pleasure to find such wonderful Roman and Moorish architecture and history other than churches/mosques in a town like Carmona; a mini version of Cordoba but without the push and shove brigades of thousands of tourists. One must read the well prepared leaflet and make every effort to get to the top gallery as the views over... More

The view of 360 degrees takes breath of you! One of the most beautiful hilltowns in Spain! just 30 min driving from Sevilla. Many marries here from Sevilla. Easy to park and walk around. The lady in the tourist office is very helpful.
