Woman at the Portal of France
Woman at the Portal of France
TitleWoman at the Portal of France
Summary/DescriptionA woman rides a mule or small horse past the Portal of France/Zumalacárregui (Portal de Francia o de Zumalacárregui) in Pamplona, Navarre, Spain. This is one of and the oldest of six sections of gates that still remain from Pamplona's time as a fortification. It was originally called "The Waterer" (abrevador) in documents dating back to the 14th century because riders could take their horses through the gate to get them a drink, this part of the gate was built in 1553. The gate was initially called Portal de France because the gate faced the direction of that country. The name was eventually changed in honor of Tomás de Zumalacárregui y de Imaz, a military commander born in Ormaiztegi, uzkoa, Basque Country, Spain, who led the Carlist army to several key victories during the First Carlist War (1833-1839).
