Clearly was the main entrance to to city back in the days. Looks like recently restore/clean. Leads you right onto the Cathedral.

There are/were 12 gates opening into Burgos. This is the major one existing today and leads straight to the heart of the city. Burgos was a major Medieval city. You can imagine El CID riding thru the gates. This was his city.
