Overview
More
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.

Even if the style was a bit different and the Alcazar de la Puerta de Sevilla isn’t sitting on the top of a hill, still reminded me to the castles that we visited in Portugal. The Carthaginians built this veteran fortress in between 237 and...More

Completely unexpected - looks like a gate, but so much more to see once you climb the steps. Also great views over Carmona and surrounds

Also housing the tourist office, this tower is a very interesting place to explore and provides great views of the town and plains below. Very hot in August and not suitable for people with mobility restrictions.

This restaurant seemed empty before 9pm. Then it started to fill up. Appetisers were delicious. Steak with fois was the best. The food was excellent. I would go again.
