There are/were 12 gates opening into Burgos. This is the major one existing today and leads straight to the heart of the city. Burgos was a major Medieval city. You can imagine El CID riding thru the gates. This was his city.

A well preserved gateway to the old historic centre. Open to viewing as you pass through. Best go on foot to appreciate it.
