  • Puerta de Alfonso VI - The Puerta de Bisagra Vieja, also known as "Puerta Antigua de Bisagra" or "Puerta de Alfonso VI", is a gateway located gives access to the interior of the historic center of the city through the wall that surrounds it. Its construction dates from the tenth century, taking advantage of the remains of previous buildings, although it was made different modifications of Mudejar style not before the thirteenth century. At the time when the city was under Islamic rule, it was the main entrance to the city from La Vega. Later, after the construction of the Puerta Nueva de Bisagra, it remained closed, opening only for specific occasions, thus gradually falling into neglect until its restoration and reopening in 1905, centuries later. Regarding its typology and proportions, this door is very similar to the Puerta del Vado. Source: Wikipedia
