Puerta del Vado

The Puerta del Vado, is a city gate made between the end of the 11th and the beginning of the 12th century, is located in the neighborhood of Antequeruela. This district was known after the reconquest of the city of Toledo like suburb of San Isidoro, zone of important potter tradition.
This gate, due to its location, in the natural outlet of the trough that articulates the mentioned neighborhood of the Antequeruela, and being the place where waste was thrown from the nearby pots, it was gradually covering of materials and sediments; Thus, in the late 15th and early 16th century a series of remodeling takes place, such as the elevation of its pavement more than one meter above the original.

In spite of the mentioned remodelings, from the 17th century the Puerta del Vado was falling in disuse; being definitively abandoned at the end of this century and leaving only the upper part in sight. The Puerta del Vado is very similar, both in its typology and its proportions, but covered, to the Puerta de Bisagra Vieja. The part of the gate that is now visible from street corresponds to its upper body.
