Carmona is a stunning hilltop town just off the motorway between Córdoba and Seville. The old town is really beautiful with white houses built around the churches and historical buildings. Best time to visit is morning or late afternoon/early evening. During siesta nearly everything closes except a few restaurants and bars. In July heat was very intense over 40 degrees.... More

In southern Spain you can visit some of the most interesting Roman ruins in the world...this is an excellent example.The place is hard to find but you can ask at the tourist office. We visited it after lunch, which was a big mistake: it was incredibly hot!!!! However, at another time the visit worth it

Go to the tourist office in the walls of the city and ask for the information on this and the other sites in the town. The ruins are well worth a visit as is it is worth climbing the tower by the tourist office - remember if you are over 60 Spain offers lots of discounts on attractions.

Don't miss the cinema, it is fantastic the way they bring the ruins to life. Well built museum. Take a drink with you on the bus trip as facilities on the hill are limited.

We had a guided tour which is part of the entrance fee. This is a 'must' visit. Very interesting and rewarding.

This place was really neat, they've done such a great job with this archeological site. Best part was that it was free to enter! Maybe because it was free there was no a lot of signage to get there, and even right outside the door you could hardly tell you were there. But no complaints once I was actually in.... More

Entry to the archaeological site and small museum of the ancient Roman necropolis is free for EU citizens! There is a circular mausoleum with a rectangular chamber cut into the rock below and accessed via a ladder! The chamber has niches cut into its walls to accommodate urns with cremated remains. There are plenty of other rock cut chamber tombs... More

The small but excellent museum was rather overrun by a coach party. There was an excellent overview of the site from the tower, but access was cut off while we were there. We will certainly come back on our next visit to Carmona.
