  • Visited the Parador at Carmona so viewed local area did not expect such a beautiful town. It a destination in itself 
  • Had of Carmona, in Roman times, four doors that allowed the city walled with outside communication. They remain only two: the Seville and Córdoba, due to the numerous and decisive battles that occurred in our land with the passage of time. In Roman urbanism these two main doors were connected by the "maximum thistle", constituting the main road axis of the city. Even today remains almost unchanged, this path that allows access to the city by both doors and their interconnection. By the results of archaeological investigations, we know that S. I Carmona was a period of economic prosperity that led to the construction of large and important public buildings, including the Puerta de Cordoba, which would constitute not only a defensive gate but even propagandistic. In Cordoba door we can see traces of the different cultures that have been established with the passage of time in our city. In times of the Catholic Kings gate lost its primordial function defensive and, with it, their austere military appearance, taking a supervisory function of products made outside the walls, putting in practice as a Customs Office and, therefore, acquiring a civil architecture. In the 16th century Renaissance reforms made him and at the beginning of the 17TH century it was agreed to place beautiful ornamental motifs, such as shields and marble statues, now lost, which dignificaron the door. The Baroque appearance is conferred at time of Carlos II, with the reforms of 1688. At the end of the 18th century was the last intervention, carried out by famed architect neoclassical, natural of Carmona, Jose Chamorro, rebuilding part of the monument and consolidate the whole. In the intrados of the main span remains an interesting 18th century canvas, depicting the Virgin of grace, patron saint of the city. In the latest archaeological research, prior to the restoration, it has been discovered that it has two small doors on each side of the main, who were blinded in the S. II, because of political instability, currently found in the interior of the townhouses, which makes it the only Roman gate of three arches, defensive that exists in the Iberian peninsula.
