Puerta de la Macarena

Sevilla was long encircled by a defensive wall built to protect the city from possible invasions. A four hundred meter long section of these Murallas in the northeast of the city is still mostly intact.
The surviving section of the wall starts at the Puerta de Córdoba, a small crenellated tower with horseshoe-shaped doors located near the intersection of the Calle san Julián and Ronda de Capuchinos. Passing eight more towers the wall runs northwest towards the Puerta de la Macarena (Macarena Gate) near the Macarena Basilica.The Macarena Gate's appearance dates from the eighteenth century, when it was mostly rebuilt.

It is beautiful! It looks welcoming now, not defensive. Love the colours. V
