A bit of a climb, but it`s worth it. You see all of Carmona around you, with the Church Towers and the white houses.

This is Alcazar Puerta De Sevilla, Carmona! Don't mistaken this with Royal Alcázar of Seville in Seville! We were doing our research, and released that these are totally diff from the one in Seville itself. Although the name with Sevilla in it, but location for this is in Carmona, not in Seville. A lot of the reviews here actually mixed... More

Very nice city to walk around and not far from Seville. Lots of parking all over. Parking in the town center is relatively expensive so look for street parking. If you plan to eat there, find a place first before arriving as there would most likely be a parking space near the restaurant. The good restaurants are not in the... More

Fortress of the Gate of Seville in Carmona, nice town close to Seville, is a marvelous fortification built on this site by the Carthaginians as early as the 14th to the 12th centuries BC. The Alcazar was carefully and masterfully restored in 1975

Not a lot to see but getting close up to this big structure was amazing. A couple of eateries close to the gateway on the historic town side.

The Alcazar is definitely a place to visit when in Seville. You can wander through the ancient castle, dreaming of a glorious past. The place is nicely renovated, and it features great architecture and many decorations. There is an inner courtyard with a small pool, like in all the former Morish castles. There is also a large garden to enjoy.

I did not realize that Carmona had so many treasures, but it has a long history and many buildings worth visiting. The views from the Alcazar are sensational, at least today, on a clear day. Worth visiting for several days for sure.

This gateway marks the entrance into the historic centre of Carmona from Seville. It's history is long and varied and the structure records, almost stratagraphically, its development from the Carthaginian foundations, through Roman adaptations and later Arabic additions. Pedestrians can walk through it and it accommodates the town's tourist office and access to the Puerta de Sevilla Museum. Cars have... More
