  • Very nice arch and all the historic center, but nothing from the other world. If you have great maintenance.

  • The arch of the star is the monumental city of Cáceres, which is truly a magical city and one of the best preserved of its kind in Europe, this arch links the Plaza Mayor with the Plaza de Santa María and was modified so that the carriages could pass to the city Monumental (walled), I is the first one I see of that type, has as a curvature to let pass the carriages, you have to visit this city and take the guided tour on foot.

  • Brilliant and almost tourist free
  • It was an old security gate on the wall surrounding the city of Cáceres. Over time, extra-mural buildings were built and their usefulness lost. Then an important person who had resources requested its restoration and granted it, creating this arch, whose curiosity is that it is designed to turn left, where the restorer had his residence. Its name comes that the bow was crowned by a Virgin of the star. The highlight of this door is that through it they crossed Alfonso IX and the Catholic Monarchs to swear the jurisdictionof the city.
