    Medieval city gates


Old gates of the medieval city of Valencia, built by the architect Pedro Balaguer in 1392. They are one of the examples of civil Gothic still standing in the city, and in addition to their defensive nature, they had a ceremonial and representative use, for entrance of ambassadors and distinguished visitors from abroad. It was considered the main gate of the city.

They are made of limestone and contain five rooms with ribbed vaults. The Gothic decoration of the central body stands out. From there the “Crida” is carried out, the official act with which the Fallas festival begins.
