Saint Anthony Porch (Lorca - Murcia)

Saint Anthony Porch (Lorca)

The Saint Anthony Porch is one of the entrance gates of the old medieval wall of Lorca, which is exceptional for its great state of conservation.

It is a corner gate, located inside a tower 8 meters in front and 5 meters on its side. The current gate rests on an old Arab tower and was rebuilt between the 13th and early 14th centuries.
The capitals show a sculptural decoration, with two half-length lions facing each other, which today are very worn.

Inside the first body, on an altar, a mural painted during the 14th century stands out, in which Saint Ginés de la Jara is presented in a mountainous landscape.
