Carmona

Comparing itself to the shining morning star, the city's rich history is on display, from Roman gates to baroque churches, all crowned by an Arab alcazar.

About

A pre-Roman settlement that was gentrified by Phoenician traders, and fortified by Rome, each passing empire supplemented the city’s beauty. Today, the Roman road that still runs through the city, and even its fortified gates are still standing strong. There’s also a Roman necropolis located on the city outskirts with hundreds of tombs and burial chambers excavated from rock. Within its fortified walls, the old quarter, lined with beautiful religious and civic buildings has maintained its Arab influence. Standing above the city is the 15th century church of Santa María la Mayor, built over a former Arab mosque. A walk through the historic old town reveals a treasure trove of Mudejar houses nestled against Renaissance and baroque buildings. At the city’s highest point in the city, the Almohad King Don Pedro Fortress, a former Arab fortress, offers stupendous views in a historic setting.
