Cordoba Gate of Carmona
The walls of Carmona had four gateways to the city, of which only two are still preserved: the Cordoba Gate and the Seville Gate.
In the times of Catholic Monarchs, the Cordoba Gate (Puerta de Córdoba, in spanish) lost its defensive role and began to perform the duties of office due to the control of products made outside the walls. In the sixteenth century, Renaissance reforms were made, in 1688 it was given a Baroque style and finally, in the eighteenth century the last renovation was made, giving it the current neoclassical look.
In the main doorway there is an eighteenth-century painting depicting the Virgin of Grace, the patron saint of the city.
The visit to the Cordoba Gate, has to be booked in the City Museum.
