To enter the intramural area of the old town of Cáceres, there's nothing like the Arch of the Star. The main wall gate of Caceres is a characteristic obelisk. Supposedly, it's shaped like this to allow carriages to enter. Its name derives from the Virgen de la Estrella, located on the inner side of the arc. On the other hand, facing the Plaza Mayor, there is the shield of Caceres on the arch.
