Bow of the New Gate
This Gate replaces the previous one, called Imperial Gate , work of the reign of the Catholic Monarchs. It is known by writings in the archive of the City Council that Puerta dicha was commanded of 1796, because it is in a ruinous state that previously underpinned and you can not enter you can see or leave through it. Its state of ruin was due to a large avenue of the river 20 years earlier, which left the foundations of the arch in the air.
The plans and project of the reconstruction are carried out by the Alarife and Master of works of the city of Burgos, Mr. Francisco de Céspedes, commanded by Mr. Manuel Machón Martínez de Mollinedo: General Intendent of the province of Burgos.
The shield we can see today in our arch was an important one in the previous Imperial Gate and was cleaned and repaired to be placed in the new arch. This shield belongs to the royal, imperial, Catholic Monarch weapons and is dated between 1492 and 1516. The work was stowed in 14,900 reais at May 7, 1796.
It was released for public auction on 5 June 1796 edict on May 11, 1796. Its last restoration was to lose out during the summer months of 2008.
