Almodóvar Gate (Puerta de Almodóvar)

Dating from times of Moorish settlement in town, the Puerta de Almodóvar Gate was originally known as “Bab al-Chawz” or Puerta del Nogal. Along with Puerta de Sevilla and Puerta del Puente gates this one is one of the three city gates that survived the trials of time.


Found at the west side city wall, the gate in its current shape dates from the 14th century. It is flanked by towers to both sides, which are linked by a parapet walk.

Today Puerta de Almodóvar provides access to Judería, the ancient Jewish quarter. After crossing the gate, visitors find themselves in a maze of tiny squares and meandering narrow streets, virtually putting them back into another time. Right behind the gate, alongside the city wall, there is picturesque Calle de Judíos street, where the synagogue, the Sephardic House (Casa Sefarad) and the Andalusian House (Casa Andalusí) are found. The street ends at Maimonides Square.
