A walk through the streets of Carmona shows Moorish-style houses built during the XV and XVI and some religious buildings like the church of Santa Maria la Mayor, which was built on the ancient Arab mosque in the fifteenth century in an attempt to remove all Muslim traces after the conquest and to impose the new dominant religion.
