When I was living in Sevilla, I got to see tons of the lesser-known sights of the region, like the small town of Carmona.  


Carmona historically has pretty extensive mix of cultures and religions, like a lot of Andalucía. Whoever was the current conqueror of the region just built their important buildings on top of the old ones. It’s not unusual to find a cathedral that was once a mosque, and at some point a synagogue too.

And that’s still going on today in a way. I loved the way all the new buildings were jammed up against the old cathedral. In parts, the cathedral wall was also somebody’s back garden wall!

I was lucky to get a cloudy, overcast day when I went – it made all the city’s colors really stand out.
