What an amazing place. It poured rain, but we thoroughly enjoyed walking the narrow cobbled streets to arrive at this gate. So photogenic. Put the map away and wander through the old town. Interesting buildings, shops, surrounded by massive walls. A few hours is plenty...More

The Southern entrance to the town, it is often missed by tourists. Approached through a quiet but fascinating section of the town, it opens up to a sort of drawbridge over the Gurdic spring.

Worth a quick stop whilst in the city. These walls and gates offered the city protection in years gone past. Average to good I think.
