Seville, beautiful and diverse

The walls of Seville, built by Julius Caesar, were seven kilometres long, with 166 towers, 13 gates and 6 shutters.

Located in Seville, the Arco del Postigo del Aceite (Arch of the Gate of the Oil) is the only one of the three existing gates in the old Arab wall. Its origin dates back to 1107, in the time of Ben Yusuf, although it was greatly reformed in the 16th century by Benvenuto Tortello. The wall ran through what is now the Plaza del Cabildo, which still has a small section of the wall.
