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.

amazing views of the entire city and the countryside; interesting many hundred-years-old architecture. We could walk around the old fortress and learn about the history of Carmona. The arches were a great photo op and the city was not infiltrated with thousands of tourists --It was a great place to see "real" culture.

Worth a visit in Sevilla - a very unique architecture. Every room is unique. Sevilla must be on your list of places to visit in Spain.

Tapestries, titled rooms, gardens, almost too big to do in half day. Landscaping was amazing, be sure to set aside time to view. Food available, but crowded inside.

We were lucky enough to have a guide with us who explained much of the long and colourful history of this facinating edifice. The views over Carmona and the surrounding countryside are exquisite.

We paid a small fee at the tourist office and watched a fascinating video (in Spanish) about Carmona. We were walking out when we realised that there was a door leading outside. From there, we ewre able to walk over most of the old gatehouse. There were wonderful views and a small museum
