Gate of the City (Mojacar - Almeria)

Gate of the City (Mojacar)

It is the original access to the city of Mojacar. The current door was rebuilt in the 16th century on the original Arabic door, which opened in the wall. Its last restoration was in the 18th century.

On its semicircular arch the shield of the city can be seen, with the double-headed eagle of the house of Austria, dedicated to the loyalty of the town to the Habsburg dynasty during the war of the Alpujarras.
In the vicinity of the door was where the market was formerly held, at the central point of the network of white streets that make Mojacar such a beautiful and picturesque town.
