Must-see sights include the Puerta de Sevilla (Seville Gate); the Roman necropolis, evidence of a magnificent past; and the Museum of the City of Carmona, which provides a journey through the town's history.
It is less than half an hour by car from the tranquility of our Parador and the lovely town of Carmona to the magic and light exuded by Seville. It is almost impossible to express the beauty of Andalusia's capital in words. The city is home to some of the most spectacular sights in Spain, including the Giralda, cathedral, Torre del Oro (Golden Tower), Triana neighborhood and Reales Alcázares palace complex. In this city bathed by the Guadalquivir, religion and celebrations are lived with special passion.
