Puerta de la villa de hornos de segura

It is very interesting to see as "adorned" with geraniums ancient gateway to the village of Hornos de Segura, a door in the wall dating X-XII century. At that age, s access to the town was made by a door that was defended by a broad stone tower which is supposed Almohad origin. The gate was built on "elbow" in order to make access difficult enemies. It is made of red brick masonry vaults, as well as a small front window. It is known that the town had formerly successive four-door, which hindered the entry and potential enemies and were made in the rock. The door along with the whole castle is declared as cultural interest.

Puerta de la villa de hornos de segura

Resulta muy curioso ver como se ha "adornado" con macetas de geranios la antigua puerta de acceso a la Villa de Hornos de Segura, una puerta en la muralla que data del siglo X-XII.

En esos siglo,s el acceso a la villa se realizaba por una puerta que estaba defendida por una ancha torre de piedra cuyo origen se le supone almohade. La puerta se construyó en "codo" para así dificultar el acceso de enemigos. Está fabricada con mampostería y ladrillo rojo en las bóvedas, al igual que una pequeña ventana de la fachada.
Se sabe que la villa tuvo antiguamente cuatro puertas sucesivas, que dificultaba así la entrada a los posibles enemigos y que estaban hecha en la roca viva.
La puerta junto con el conjunto del castillo está declarada como bien de interés cultural.
