This could have been one of the best parts of Carmona with historical wall and gate but the area that is the Gate of Cordoba, not the entrance to the Parador is badly neglected and run down. It is the highest point in the town...More

If you are walking around the historic area of Carmona,you will at one point or another come to this gate. It is beautiful. Try to take a photo from inside the gate looking out -- it looks like a painting. It helps if no cars...More

this is sort of attached to the Parador and it gives it a maganificent feeling of grandeur to a very beautiful building that the Parardor here is.

The Cordoba gate is completely different in style from the Seville Gate, but is well worth seeing. Furthermore, the walk trough this lovely town alone is worth the hike up.

This gate was built by the Romans although other occupants (Arabs and medieval Christians) have worked on it since then.

There are two gates to Carmona, one from the road to Sevilla and the one leading to Córdoba. They are beautiful preserved remnants of a time long gone and you will pass through them if you want to visit the Old Town

This town could easily be missed when visiting Andalusia. It is a beautiful historical town. Put it on your list to visit

Carmona is less crowded than the big andalusian cities, yet there is a plenty to see. puerta de Cordoba has it's own time and story as well as roman via Augusta (as i've been told) still can be seen just outside this port.

This gate is on the "other" side of the old city, so it might be blissfully quiet. In the morning, the sun lights it up to a nice golden color. If you are in Carmona, you should visit...the old town is small enough to walk...More

We made an unscheduled stop on our way to Seville and were delighted by this little town. Quaint restaurants, crooked streets and breathtaking views ! Good stop before the crowds in Seville for lunch The puerta de Córdoba is quite stunning and worth the stop.
