Puerta del Puenta - Cordoba Spain historic centre

Photo by J. Entrenas - ©2005

An Arab gate stood here up until 1571, when the mayor ordered the construction a new gate to commemorate King Felipe II's visit to Cordoba . It was designed by Hernan Ruiz III, who worked with his father on the construction of the cathedral. Currently, the gate looks squatter, like a triumphal arch, because the ground it stands on is lower than the streets around it.
