Arcos de la Frontera to Carmona

Tonight we are staying in the Parador de Carmona a little east of Sevilla. Before we left Arcos de la Frontera this morning we walked around the town. We checked out a view point and a church.

The drive from Arcos to Carmona was over relatively flat farm country. The crops we could identify included carrots, wheat, olives and grapes. There were also many crops we couldn’t identify.

In Carmona we are staying at a Parador on the sight of the former city wall and castle.

After enjoying our welcome drinks we went out exploring. We checked out the Carmona city museum. This area has been inhabited for six thousand years. The museum had exhibits about the people who have lived here over those years.
