Almocábar Gate

In the south part of the wall which is kept in good condition, you will find this entry to the city of Ronda, which connects it with the historical. Built in the thirteenth century, it was significantly amended under Charles V. Its name comes from "Al-maqabir" (cemetery) because from the outer part, people proceeded directly to the burial ground from the deceased Muslims. A mid-sixteenth century a quadrangular front was added in the Almeno Renaissance style (arch in stone), eliminating the elbow-shaped inlet typical to Andalusian citadels in order to facilitate entry of the carriages.
