Immerse yourself in the history of Antequera by visiting the old gates that gave access to the city. Four wonderful points of interest that will make you remember the old layout of the city and its walls.
Puerta de Granada
The construction of this arch was carried out in 1748, directing the works the master builder Martín de Bogas. The current appearance of the arch does not fully correspond to the one it offered at the time of its inauguration, since it has undergone several modifications. Except for its main body, the attic was notably redone. The central niche was made of half a point, housing inside the image of the Virgin of the Rosary and the large lateral fins, adopted a slight curvature.
Important remains of the old Muslim fence of the town are preserved, next to the Plaza del Carmen, these are the tower of the Assault and the albarrana tower of the Star. The Albarrana de la Estrella tower is an autonomous tower attached to the fence by a semicircular arch, next to which a gap or shutter was opened after the conquest, in order to enter the enclosure. The Andalusian Arabic flavor of this corner is evocative of other times.
