The Alcazar is a typical fortified Moorish fortress at the Gate from Sevilla. It signals entrance into the Old Town of Carmona and houses the tourist office. A visit will cost you a few Euros but the view from the top is stunning.

Groups of singers... More

Honestly, there is not a lot to see but the views on a sunny day are just gorgeous. There is a lot of information given to you on the self guided tour, but finally, you are looking at some place mostly in ruin. Again....the views make the place.

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.

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.
