Slightly swallowed up in the traffic at the meeting point of the Old City and the roads in from the south-west, this neo-classical gate was one of the monuments commissioned by Napoleon's brother Joseph in his brief span as King of Spain. After his departure it was rejigged to honour the delegates from the Cortes in Cádiz, and then King Fernando VII.
