It is heartwarming to know that this was not demolished for some city project. It is a massive structure and part of your city walls walk.

This is a door into the city. You can drive through it and along all Elvira, and in fact need to if you are coming from central city and want to park in the St Augustin parking structure.

It isn't the prettiest city gate that I ever saw, but worth to have a look if you intend to walk in Albayzin. We came down from Alhambra when we bumped into Puerta de Elvira. Of course, we tried to get as much information as...More

We came across the gate as we were about to start our climb to Mirador St Nicolas via the Albayzin. It's in a very pretty area at the End of Elvira St with some rather steep steps up to Albayzin nearby, and a nice plaza...More
