The scope and beauty of the alcazar is impossible to put into words. If you close your eyes and let your imagination carry you, you can be taken back in time some 500 years. The details and creation of this place are amazing

What a lovely place to roam around. Take at least 2 hours for this palace in the centre of the city. A nice permanent exhibition of the sevillian tiles and a castle so well preserved! Really a must see!

It is one of the most magnificent buildings you can see (the outside) for free. The tiles are magnificent. It is expansive enough to hold the many tourists who visit it.

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.

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
