The first monument you see is the Granadas Gate. You find this broad and beautifully decorated gate on the path that starts at Plaza Nueva, and that leads you to the forest of the Alhambra. The portal is constructed in the style of Roman triumphal arches, with a classic front façade. It used to function as the main entrance of the wall around the Alhambra.
Next, you see another gate, the Bib Rambla gate. This gate was the old city gate of Granada and originally located in the center of the city.
