The old gateway to the town, one of the most important of the walled enclosure, used to stand in the central section of calle Plaza Alta y Baja, right at the entrance to calle Flores de Negrón.

The eastern wall ran along calle Plaza Alta y Baja and housed the gateway known as the town gateway, and later as Arco de San Jorge, due to a small chapel built next to the wall dedicated to the saint of the same name, closely associated with the city. This gate led onto calle de las Flores de Negrón and the district of Santiago, one of the oldest in the city and a possible medieval suburb around the time of the heyday of Jewish Lucena.
