Of Cultural Interest in Carmona
El Carmonilla
In the northern part of Carmona, beyond where the Cardus Maximus Roman road is extended, there is a small square with a modern air where you will find one of the most popular local histories. Near the halt of Guadajoz a roundabout has been reused to install a reproduction of the train that carried out the route between Guadajoz and Carmona. The railway was authorized in 1875 and, as in other similar ways, this type of train moved there due to the strength of the coal. The purpose for this line was for the nearby mines to be linked from the north of the province and framed within the industrial plans of the industrial revolutions. Until the failure of the model based on coal yield end to this type of trains miners and became part of the past. These trains were known by the nickname of cinders, due to the fact that the smoke that they used to give off would smudge, and therefore it would look like ashes. The cinders of Carmona was soon renamed by the as Carmonilla and said it was not racist because he rode a white and black was down. The little train on exhibition there is not real, though. This is a reproduction, made by Carmona IV Workshop School in December 2004.

House of the Waters
It is a civilian building that until the last century supplied drinking water to the people of Carmona. It is in the highest part of the town, very close to the Puerta de Córdoba and opposite the church of Santiago. It's being renovated due to its current cultural importance and is remarkable for its Mudejar building aesthetics. It's a 2-floor brick building. At the entrance, there is Baroque ornamentation that clashes with the rest of it. There is a lintel entrance between flat pilasters and upper balcony with a small overhang. The building has three floors, topped by an undeniably Andalus gallery with semicircular arch. Inside, there's a large space, ideal for all kinds of exhibitions and cultural events, as well as various agencies related to its previous function as a water supply.

Urban Wall of Carmona
(1)
The walled city of Carmona stands over 3 km, which is a sign of its significance in Roman Andalusia. It was walled in the 8th century BC until conquered by the Bárquidas that extended the walls based on square and rectangular towers. The moat can be seen at the entrance gate of the Alcazar of Seville. When the city was taken by the Romans, they changed the wall. Rome drew the urban fabric of Carmona following its usual typology: An open forum in the center and 4 gates at the cardinal points of the walls together by 2 main routes. The decumanus maximus was oriented east-west coming together in Carmona doors Cordoba and Seville. The Cardus maximus was oriented north-south connecting the gates of Lora del Rio and Marchena, now demolished. In the thirteenth century the Almohads modified Roman plotting barbicans including some towers and arches. In the 18th century the Renaissance and Baroque Córdoba Gate retouched. The two most important elements of the wall of Carmona are the palaces of their front doors. The top hosts a National Parador, the lower the Office of Tourism. Both palaces are visited. I recommend taking a look.
