Puerta de San Diego
This gateway was built by Alejandro de Fuenmayor in 1540. The side that faced the river had an arch which sported three coats of arms at the top: that of Spain was in the center, that of the island was on the right and that of the city was on the left. The food sold in the Old Market and the Plaza of the Vegetables was brought into the city through this gate. San Diego Fort was located just outside the gate. The fort was torn down to enlarge the dock in 1886 although part of the structure was reconstructed recently with the creation of the Avenida del Puerto.
