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

This is a must if you are in the area. The architecture is superb. Buildings that are being put up in our age will never last the time that this one has. take your time and enjoy.

This is the most beautiful place I've seen in the South of Spain. I even didn't expect it. Alcazar by itself is nice, with many beautiful bareliefs and typical east architecture. But the gardens are smth unbelievable! Some episodes of the Game of Thrones were shot here. U will definitely spend some wonderful hours walking around and making photos in... More

Great place to visit. The entrance is just under the gate and for €2 you get in and can climb to the top of the tower. Beware though as some of the stairs are uneven and high. Worth it though.

Now the site of the Tourist Bureau. Look at the arches and the stones, walk up to the top and see the views but definitely get a guide to explain the history of the gate. It is so interesting and at first sight you will see so much but go back and have another look and discover something else!

Wonderful experience, surpassing the Alhambra in the detail and intimacy if the experience. Higly commend for anyone visiting the city, though be careful of queues at peak times.

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.
