Favorite thing: Just above the old bridge is a gate - Arco de Felipe V, from the same era. This gate would have been the only entrance to La Ciudad from this end of the town, making it a key defence. The gate was probably a substitute for an earlier gate from the Muslim period - it was constructed in the place known as the Moor's Armchair. A text engraved on a stone plaque tells us the gate was built in 1742.
