Carmona tops a small rise in a fertile valley 30 km (19 miles) east of Sevilla on the N-IV/E-5. It’s a relatively small place to have two alcazares (fortresses), one the work of the Moors with some earlier Roman indications, the other a much larger Mudéjar fortress, the rework of King Pedro I. Steeples rise throughout the town, signaling the path to Christ by way of the numerous churches. If you choose this orthodox route, head for the San Pedro cathedral across the street from the old alcazar after having traipsed around La Puerta de Sevilla (where the tourism office is also located). Pass the church and follow the street of the same name away from the town to the excavated necrópolis (graveyard), a rare find in Spain and primary among Carmona’s Roman remains.
