City Walls

The walls which used to mark the boundaries of the Jewish quarter extended virtually to the Arab walls. The latter enclose the Alcazar gardens and continue along the river bank.

These stretches of wall are among the better conserved in the city's fortified enclosure, although they are from a later period. The Roman and Arab walls crumbled and, eventually, in the 15th century after the Christian conquest, several monarchs ordered their reconstruction.

The Seville Gate occupies a place in the western section of the walls.
