Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web
Charged with the task of being the city's first impression, Puerta de la Ciudad gallantly greets visitors with its arched doorway and two imposing turrets. This castlelike entrance welcomes visitors on the main street, guarding the central plazas that can be found just inside. The castle gate houses an art museum that focuses on modern expression of local identity. Throughout the museum you'll also find an archeology gallery with tools and weapons belonging to pre-Hispanic cultures, a cafeteria, craft store, and vantage points overlooking the city.

  • Appearance of medieval castle gives you the pattern of what you can find. You can see exhibitions of both national and foreign painters, also there is a restaurant with traditional food lojana. The best is when you climb to the top that allows you to view (the Bell Tower not). You can see the entire city. I loved it.
