Alcazar de Arriba (Upper Fortress), Carmona

Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
3.4/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web
Walk the perimeter and admire the architecture of Alcazar de Arriba (Upper Fortress), a castle in the Mudéjar style with notes of both Christian and Islamic designs. Built for 13th-century King Pedro of Castile, the structure features interlocking, multi-lobed arches, decorative masonry, and colorful ceramic tiles. Take the marked tourist walking path from Carmona's Old Town up to the fortress, where you can walk around the exterior and enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The beauty of the castle led to its establishment as a "parador"--a luxury hotel located in a historical building such as a monastery or castle. Only guests who are staying here are allowed to enter the building. If you do stay here, you will enjoy the spacious patio, fountain, swimming pool, and beautiful gardens.

  • All the times that I've been in Carmona only I have seen it it from outside, which I gather is not open to visitors inside. Remains of an alcazar Arabic and a castle Christian, Tower of the tribute. At night it remains illuminated and a walk is beautiful in your environment
