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

Nothing I didn't like.If you like history, you will love this ancient door to the city, with the different history of all the cultures that built it.

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.

The Alcazar was very beautiful with lots of mosaic tiles and tapestries. The gardens were extensive and very nice. We didn't dislike anything it's just that we had been to Granada's Alhambra and were wowed by it and so in our minds the Alcazar suffers in comparison. If you are in Seville it is definitely worth the visit. And if... More

Such a feast for the eyes - the tiles alone are worth going to see. And the gardens are full of delights for both the eye and nose. Definitely worth a visit.

Carmona itself is a place you must try to visit; typical Andalusian white painted houses, narrow cobbled streets, small churches and then this incredible fort or at least the remains of it. The sheer scale of it blows you away, you ask yourself, how did they build this? Which brings me round to the lack of an audio guide, it... More

If you are travelling between Seville and Corboda, Carmona is definitely worth a stopover. And in Carmona the Alcazar/fortress should be your first port of call. There is normally a small entrance fee but we arrived on a Monday, when entry is free. The attendant was helpful and informative. The fort is full of history and this is well explained... More

Staff in the tourist information were great, I got the guide book rather than go on the tour. It's very interesting, and worth a visit.

Stunning and well worth the trip. Rather a lot of steps to climb if you have an elderly person in your group.
