Recovered by Fernando III the Saint in the 13th century, it was a defensive complex, the site of the Inquisition and even a prison. After 1482, it was the operational headquarters of the Catholic Kings’ troops and the strategy to conquest the Kingdom of Granada was decided her for the next ten years. Declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco, it is one of the most visited monuments in Cordoba, after the Mosque and the Synagogue.

(Vicente Aranda, 2003)

The interior scenes in the Tobacco Factory in Carmen’ were not filmed in Seville, but recreated in the Caballerizas Reales of Cordoba’s Alcázar, as they were more similar judging by paintings from that time. They were specifically filed in Plaza de Armas, the bedroom, the court and the stables.
