Description

“Sant Antoni” gate and Sea gate are the two gates to get into the Old Town, the fortified space build during the first phase of edification of Santa Pau around the Lords residence.
“Sant Antoni” gate is also named Old Town gate because it draws a line between the Old and the New Town which was built out of the fortified area.
Old Town gate is an excellent vantage point from where there are wonderful panoramic views of the eastern part of the valley. On clear days you can even see the Bay of Roses, which is why this entrance is known as the “Portal del Mar” (Sea gate).
