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.

Cool fortress with stunning views of Carmona and the countryside. Overall Carmona was a lovely half-day trip from Seville and an unexpected highlight of my time in Spain. To get to from Seville: Casal bus M - 124 from the San Bernardo station. Ticket costs...More

What an amazing experience! Alcazar lived up to the expectations. The palace was beautiful and the gardens tranquil. If am English speaking guide offers you the chance to skip the line ... do it. We weren't disappointed.

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
