Passing out of Portugal, our first "backroads" town is Carmona in Southwestern Spain on a ridge overlooking Andalusia. It was Carmo in Cæser's time and fortified during the Moorish occupation. The parador we stayed in was built in the ruins of part of those fortifications.

Pretty snazzy inside, too.

Given its position on the hilltop, it has some stunning views

Architecturally, it's a charming and beautiful town. Here's the market square:
