I don't know how one finds out the schedule, but we were able to go inside on a Sunday afternoon. It is quite interesting and it tells you the history of the gate which made it more interesting than just seeing it from the outside.

It's an old city door located near the river. It's worth a visit since it's free and you will walk/drive past it anyway.

These are easy to visit as they are on a main street in Badajoz right by the river. It is just a great place for a picture or two while you are checking out other sites in Badajoz.

It's beautiful however not much of an attraction as it's just simply old doors to the city and nothing else.

Monumental gate (16th century) which was the main entrance to the city coming from Portugal or from Caceres. Alongside the Vauban walls of the city, it forms an architectural ensemble of great interest.

The lighting work (especially during the new year celebration) makes this gate very beautiful and stunning in the night.

The road on the bridge over the River Guadiana enters Badajoz through the Puerta de Palmas and it is very picturesque as you walk across the river. It's also an excellent place to start your tour of the city, as you can walk around most...More
