Step into elvira street

La puerta de Elvira (Elvira Gate), also known in Granada as the Elvira Arch, is located in the historic city centre of Granada, to be more precise in the Plaza del Triunfo (Triumph Square).

It stands out because the famous Elvira Street begins right behind it, which gave way to the ancient kings when they came in the old city of Granada. Of Arab origin, it is believed that its primary function was to provide access to the city, being defensive; it became the main entrance to Granada. It dates back to the 11th century, and was rebuilt in the 14th. Historians say it was the connection between the Medina and the neighbourhood of Alcazaba.
