Alcázar de la Puerta de Sevilla, Carmona

Alcázar de la Puerta de Sevilla

The fortress has a lot of history, with a construction started by the Carthaginians between 237 and 206 B.C. Then the Romans arrived as usual. When they conquered Málaga, the Catholic Monarchs imprisoned the Muslim mayor Amet-el Zegrí there. A major restoration took place between 1973 and 1975. Ex-British cabinet member and train enthusiast Michael Portillo has been known to hang around the main square.
