The Arco de Santa Maria is an old city gate that has been restored and is very beautiful. You pass it when you go to the Cathedral. It is very clean and interesting.

Arcos de Santa Maria is a beautiful historical building come monument. Fortunately it is easy to find being located between the river walk and the cathedral. See it at night with the cathedral being lit behind it.
