The so called Station Gateway was cut open in 1875, at the request of some citizens who demaned an easy route from the city centre to the railway station. One year later it was expanded by pulling down the two adjoining towers, and in 1921 it was further widened by demolishing the whole archway and building the one that can be seen nowadays. The scarcity of ornament bears witness to the poor economic situation at the time because of budget restrictions related to World War I.
Gate designed by Nemesio Cobrero in 1875 and which was demolished in 1921.
There are two built-in rooms that served as toll cabins, to raise one of the most unfair taxes of the XIX and XX century, levied on groceries and food. It is 10 metres wide, 8 metres high at the keystone, and its total height is 9 metres.
Passing through this gate, there is a staircase to the walk on top of the Wall.
