Monumental gate built in the eleventh or twelfth century according to some recent studies, although earlier historians dating it to the Nasrid period. It is also known as Puerta de las Manos or Puerta de los Orejas. It served to expose criminal members. It was originally located next to the Plaza Bib-Rambla, in calle Salamanca, in a mighty tower of the wall.
The gate was demolished in the nineteenth century by the City and moved for special reasons. Its remains were preserved in the archaeological museum in the capital of Granada until Leopoldo Torres Balbás rebuilt it in the forests of the Alhambra.
