Prioral de Santa María de la Asunción

Church in Carmona

This splendid church was built mainly in the 15th and 16th centuries on the site of Carmona's former mosque. The Patio de los Naranjos, through which you enter, has a Visigothic calendar carved into one of its pillars. The interior, capped by high Gothic vaults, is centred on an altar detailed to an almost perverse degree with 20 panels of biblical scenes framed by gilt-scrolled columns.
