Another of the arches originally in the city walls, this arch still has substantial amounts of the wall still intact. It was built in the 14th century in the Mudéjar style, a muslim style used by the christians and often using muslim artisans. The gateway was originally used for the monarchs and important visitors to the city. It is flanked by two defensive towers. King Alfonso X originally ordered its construction.
