The Moorish fortress or Alcazar rises above the Puerta de Sevilla, forming an almost impregnable defensive complex - It underwent major alterations in the 14th and 15th centuries. - Restoration work carried out between 1973 and 1975 included the refurbishing of several sections as venues for staging cultural events. - Keep: the tower is solid up to the level of the courtyard and its bossed ashlars remain intact. - Tower of Gold: this tower provides a beautiful view over Carmona. - Prisoners' Hall: this is all that remains of the palace that stood inside the Alcazar. - Patio of Cisterns: in the middle of this courtyard there is an underground cistern excavated in the rock and featuring six skylights.

A large palace ground with historic castle like buildings and also nicely decorated interiors. The palace garden with nice shade from the afternoon heat and the fountains are welcoming. Can spend a couple of hours for nice walks and sit in the shade.

Beajtiful architecture full of history of andulician spain. Walk around the walls and visit the alcazar and the surrounding streets is an exciting venture.

The Carthaginians also reinforced the bastion that defended the main access to the city at the Puerta de Sevilla, creating an imposing structure today is part of the Alcázar de la Puerta de Sevilla. This turned the city into the impregnable fortress that impressed Julius Caesar.

As you enter this historic town, visit the Alcazar, you can walk the wall and get a great view of the town.

Visited Carmona while staying at the Parador as a base for seeing Seville. I would come back and make Carmona my destination, it is sooo beautiful and so much to see.

€2 entrance fee through the tourist information office. Guide / map available in English and information written in both Spanish and English in most places. You are free to wander about (self-guided) and there is a short film available to watch too. Lots of interesting information available to read and artefacts found on the site from hundreds of years back.... More

Reading some of the reviews there seems to be some confusion between this Alcazar in the small historic town of Carmona and the much more well known and larger Alcazar in the city of Seville 30km away. This building which also acts as a gateway to the historic part of the town also contains the tourist office. We visited at... More

Short wait to get through security and a ticket (€9) to gain entrance to this impressive building. There are lots of rooms with art; i have never seen such big tapestries on walls before! Very nice architecture with lots of details in the ceilings etc. Most also explained by signs in spanish and english. Cute patios and the massive garden... More
