  • Entrance to the old city... and to the medieval past! Entrance to the monumental city of Cáceres, links the main square with the square of Santa Maria. Preserves the battlements on top and on the back side there is a small image of the Virgen de la Estrella, which gives its name to the arc. There the Catholic Kings took oath to their jurisdictions by the end of the 15th century. To be the last built in the city, also known as the new gate.
