Walk the walls
Apr 2019 • Couples
This ancient gate used to be one of those that gave access to Segovia's Jewish quarter - now its the only one remaining. There is also a small museum and tiny branch of the tourist office onsite. The woman on duty was very friendly (I don't think they see that many visitors here) and gave us the code to open a gate that allowed access to a restored section of the old city walls, which you can walk along for a way. There is a mirador here too, with views of the western side of the city and surrounding countryside. Not spectacular, but nice.

An ancient gateway
Oct 2018 • Friends
This apparently was the old gateway to the Jewish Quarter and for some reason we felt an aura about the place.
We were told that it is the last surviving gate out of an original seven.
It wasn't a spectacular sighting, but we felt a real sense of history here.

The last surviving gate into the Jewish Quarter
Jul 2018 • Couples
The inside of the gate and the house above it don't look particular impressive from the street, but take a look at the outside from the City Walls and your understanding of its importance will be transformed, seeing it guarded by a huge turret and the walls themselves. Right next to it is the tourist office, where you can get the pass code to open the gate which gives access onto the City Walls themselves and some stunning views of the city, the majestic scenery outside it, the Alcazar and across to the Jewish Cemetery. Definitely making the effort to stop here, even if it might only be on the way to the Alcazar.

One more detail of the story

Something special in this spot. Not the house, beautiful and elegant, nor the street itself, but the sense of history that remains in the place. A nice place to visit and enjoy that remains of the past.

The one left out of seven
Dec 2017 • Couples
There used to be seven gates enclosing the Jewish quarter, now there is only this one left. It is worth seeing because it gives you a grasp of what all these gates were like and how the city was guarded. If you are going to walk on the walls this is a good place to start. There are some very interesting exhibits there too.

Visit of the historical part of the city of Segovia.

The San Andres Gate (Arch).

This gate you will pass on your way back to the “Aqueduct” after you have visited the “Alcazar” is also called the “Arco del Socorro”, it is the most monumental gate from the three who have been preserved and in which the “Interpretation Center” of the Wall has been installed, here the visitors can find out the history about those gates.
The “San Andres gate” should date from the year 1120, but the gate we can see on this moment is due to the restoring works done by the end of the end of the XV, initially of the XVI century. The arch has a tower on each side, who are linked to the wall, one being polygonal and the other square both of them have well preserved the Mudejar style merlons

Interesting gate, with possible access to the walls
Sep 2017 • Couples
The gate itself is fairly interesting, though not overly so. Worth looking at if you’re in the area.

However, there’s a small museum close by, in which one can get the key code that allows access to open the nearby stairgate onto the city walls. This is worth doing, because of the views over the city.

Go onto the walls!
Jan 2017 • Solo
The old gateway to the Jewish part of the old city.

The walls here have been restored and you can walk along the top of them for a short way.

You need to visit the tourist office by the gate to get the access code to allow you onto the walls.

Ok If You Are Walking By

We looked for it, and finally found it. It was OK. Small door with history. It was access to the Jewish Quarter.

Interesting and free

A gate of the old city that contains information about the city walls and their history. Free entry but, alas, no information in English. Great views.
