Half an hour from Seville, on the ruins of an impressive 14th century-Islamic fortress, stands the Parador de Carmona. The building looms over the village and offers you a fabulous swimming pool, terraces overlooking the countryside and a charming inner courtyard surrounded by tranquil sitting rooms. The restaurant is situated in the former refectory and offers spectacular views of the swimming pool and the bright Andalusian skyline, alongside traditional food, where exquisite pastries and partridge dishes are especially present.
The city of Carmona is one of the most beautiful cities in Andalusia. There are more than 500 archaeological sites in the surrounding area, which testifies to its antiquity that exceeds 2000 years. The Parador is located in the centre of Carmona, near places of interest such as the Puerta de Sevilla, the Museum of the City of Carmona, the Teatro Cerezo and the Town Hall. 10 minutes of walking will take you to the Archaeological Ensemble of this municipality.
Seville, the Andalusian capital bathed by the Guadalquivir River, is barely thirty kilometres away. Here you can visit some of Spain’s most spectacular monuments such as La Giralda, the Torre del Oro, its Gothic Cathedral, or wander through the Barrio de Triana or the Reales Alcázares.
