In addition to the Agua Gate, the Embarcadero Gate and the Buey Gate, there are three other main gates in the northern section of Niebla’s defensive wall: the Socorro Gate, with a horseshoe arch and impost; the Agujero Gate, which is thought to have been part of the old Roman citadel; and the Sevilla Gate, which –despite its Roman appearance– has a cambered Moorish arch. The walls are one of Niebla’s characteristic features. Throughout its history they have been demolished and rebuilt on various occasions. Most of the remaining enclosure dates from the 14th century, from the time of the Almoravids; although even older remains have been found.
