Carmona is built on a ridge overlooking the central plain of Andalusia; to the north is the Sierra Morena, with the peak of San Cristobal to the south. The city is known for its thriving trade in wine, olive oil, grain and cattle, and holds an annual fair in April.


Carmona is a town of southwestern Spain, in the province of Seville; it lies 33 km north-east of Seville.

Carmona has an old Carthaginian or Roman defensive gate, the Puerta de Sevilla built around 220BC. Beyond the Puerta de Sevilla is a necropolis and excavated urns and statues showed onsite. And the most special place in Carmona is the Museo de la Ciudad - palace was built in the 16th century.

In general, Carmona’s beauty mostly comes from the high white walls of churches, convents and palaces, the bell towers (espadañas) and the peaceful life. In there, vendors sell foods and goods in the colonnaded Plaza de Abastos, children chase each other throughout the alleys. This place is an ideal place for aimless wandering.

Casa - Paplacio De Carmona

Besides, staying at the Casa-Palacio De Carmona, a 17th-century renaissance palace with loggia and patios, grand staircase and galleries, and ancient heavy wooden doors with knockers, built by a conquistador who returned from Peru, is a perfect thing. However, the price is really costly for staying there.

Nevertheless, if you love foods, this is heaven for you. Local dishes in Carmona such as alboronía (an Andalucían ratatouille, with Arabic roots), Arroz de señorito Andaluz (seafood and rice) and mushrooms with Pajarete mousse – all of which are served at Molino de la Romera. It only takes a 10-minute walk from Porta de Sevilla along Cala San Felipe to the eastern edge of town where you can enjoy the beautiful views and delicious foods.
