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.

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.
