Just 30 km from Seville stands Carmona, an important city for many reasons. It is called the Star of Europe because many civilizations have left their indelible traces here.
In Carmona there are archaeological sites dating from the Neolithic period, it was a Carthaginian colony, it was Roman, Muslim and Christian, and, currently, you can visit the important Roman necropolis.
A Carmona ran the Via Augusta, the longest Roman road of Spain and its urban plan exactly reflects that of a Roman urbe.
During the Arab domination Carmona retained its importance, becoming the capital of one of the Taifa kingdoms.
