Tanner’s Gate

Gates of the Old City


Tanner's Gate


Built in approximately AD 1200, the Tanner’s Gate is older than the present city walls. The Turkish architects who constructed the present Old City fortifications walled up the gate in 1535 and it was only re-discovered and re-opened in the 1990s.
