“Carmo, quae est longe firmissima totius provinciae civitas”. “Carmona is by far the most powerful city in the entire province” (Bética)
It was Julius Caesar who pronounced these words to describe the town of Carmona at the time of the Roman Republic, more than 2000 years ago. This phrase helps us to imagine the great importance of this city in Roman times, whose wall has partially been preserved up to today.
Carmona, which is located halfway between Cordoba and Seville, is considered one of the most beautiful cities of Andalusia. It is a white village in the comarca of Los Alcores, surrounded by olive groves and sunflower fields, as well as having an impressive view of the River Corbones valley, which has shaped the landscape for over thousands of years forming the cliff where the city stands and has provided refuge to its population throughout history.
Among the most visited places in the city we can find the Roman Necropolis (first century BC) or the Alcazar del Rey Don Pedro, which is now one of the most charming hotels in Spain. From there, you will be able to enjoy wonderful views over the whole region.
The sunflowers fields and agriculture also attract tourists and people who want to know firsthand how an oil mill works and how the liquid gold of Andalusia, the olive oil, is obtained.
