"Ancient gateway into the city"

This ancient Arabic gateway was the principal entrance to the city until the construction of the Puerta de Bisagra (Hinge Gateway) in the eleventh century. Although the Alfonso VI gateway lost importance in terms of use, the legends surrounding it still date back centuries. One example is its very name, which comes from the popular belief asserting that Alfonso VI rode through it in triumph when he took the city from the Moors for his Christian kingdom during the Reconquest.
