A beautiful yellow coloured stone wall with fountain & arch. There are steps & mobility scooter friendly Ramps to the top of the wall for some lovely views over the countryside

Parked near by and walked up the hill through the gate then up to a huge church with a great view. There are a couple of bars and restaurants at the top for a drink. A nice place to rest before heading to the castle...More

As another reviewer mentioned there is not much to the gate, but it is pretty. There is small section of the wall that you can walk along. The entrance is through the gate, to the left.

A lovely looking arch in an authentic and lovely town. Medina Sidonia has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Not a touristy town, but a proper Andaluz town where visitors are more than welcome!

I wouldn't really call it an attraction as such but like most of Spain this old Moorish gateway is simply part of the town. Makes a stunning backdrop.
