Puerta De La Coraxa O De La Traicion Reviews & Ratings

  • Entrada muito bonita

  • Vista recomendable

  • Tradicionalmente se conoce como puerta de la traición, pero de forma errónea, ya que algunos autores consideraron que esta era la puerta donde el rey portugués Alfonso Enríquez intentó huir del rey Fernando II de León en 1169. Otros estudios más recientes demuestran que este hecho tuvo lugar en una puerta de la ciudad, y no de la Alcazaba.
