Arco de la Estrella

This is one of the five access gates to the vila, near Mérida, the Fountain or Gate of the Council, of the Succor and of the Wicket. In its interior, the Virgin of the Star is housed, thus its name. This gate has been crossed by both Catholic Kings, Isabel of Castille and Ferdinand V of Aragon.

In 1,726, Churriguera modified the gate in the baroque style, widening it to facilitate carriage travel. It unites the inner curtain of the city with the Plaza Mayor.
