An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Puerta del Tiro

The Puerta del Tiro was the main entrance to the Alcazar in the Muslim city. It communicated the citadel directly with the “medina”. However, the Islamic gate was extensively transformed. It ultimately became a gateway with direct access to the palace area during the ducal period.

Its original structure must have followed the bent-entrance model with a front tower. It was remodelled in the 15th century, providing direct access to a monumental stone door that is currently in the Alcázar Gardens in Seville.
