“Final Entrance”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

this is the famous entrance to the old city. The final destination
after walking the Paseo de la Princesa. The entrance was built
by the conquistadors to be locked at night to keep out the enemy.
once you pass the entrance you will find La Fortaleza on your
right which is the governor's mansion when you go up the streets,
you will find spectacular centuries old homes, and up on top you
will find on your right Hotel El Convento and directly in front
the old Spanish catholic church built centuries ago.

“Interesting”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

watch out for the pigeons. Gate is an awesome viewing spot, but know the pigeons are everywhere. They are not bothersome just a lot of them.

Reviewed November 4, 2011

Enjoy walking through this door to the Cathedral like the Spaniards used to do. Enjoy the walkway along the wall and the picturesque views.
