The Puerta Antigua de Bisagra is the only gate of Toledo which kept its original defensive layout. It was built in the 10th century under the Moors and later expanded in the 12th century. Nearby lies the Santiago del Arrabal church built in Mudejar style in 1245-48, on the site of an older church and a mosque. The Arrabal street leads to the Valmardon gate, a beautiful 10th century Moorish gate.
