Ok, so it is not big and you cannot climb it! Get over it! It is a pice of history that is found here from a century ago. Think of this: Who walked under this arch back through the years? Columbus? Think of how is was partially destroyed in 1755 by a tsumnami off the coast of Lisbon! Amazing history up close and standing before us...brilliant!

A very old stone arch, sorely neglected, barely distinguishable. Easily forgotten. Not even photo worthy. A neighboring arch had junk discarded in it. If Galway doesn't care, should you or I? Pathetic.

It's fun to imagine who passed beneath these arches and where they were going to or coming from. From the Spanish trading times.

It was alright, but I walked past it the first time thinking that there is no way that this is what they were talking about. Loved Galway, but I. Thought that the river walk in town was much more interesting than this tiny arch.

The Spanish arch is truly an amazing piece of history hard to believe its age and soundness of construction ... A quiet stroll down to the harbour and you can stroll through the arch ...
