  La Puerta del Sol
by Chicha15

The Gateway to the Sun... dont mind the huge crack that now splits this once very intact single piece of stone that weighs about 10 tons! lighting struck it a few years ago... but it hasn't lost its charm! its a popular sight to see. Legend has it that this door was once a portal to another dimension! ooohhh...the door has been moved from its original position several times and it is believed that if it is ever put back into its original spot it could be used as it once was.... can you believe it was once covered in gold?
