The Puerta de la Macarena (in Arabic: Bab-al-Makrin), also known as Arco de la Macarena, is along with the Postigo del Aceite and the Puerta de Córdoba the only three city gates that remain today of those who had the walls of Seville. It is located in the calle Resolana, within of barrio de San Gil, which belongs to the district of Casco Antiguo of the city of Seville, in Andalusia, Spain. Facing it stands the Basílica de La Macarena, which houses the image of the Our Lady of La Esperanza Macarena, one of the most characteristic images of the Holy Week in Seville. and closely linked to the gate.

Nice area and arch is just alongside the remains of old defensive walls of Seville. Worth seeing in a less tourist-y area with plenty of local bars nearby.
Remember the song? Well, this is the place... be sure to check the surroundings, too - there is what to be seen, and to explore...
Nothing much to see. Few good places around to eat and drink. But the Arco is just an Arco.
It's a great place for photo ops. Very busy location. Beautiful.
Beautifully tasty tapas and great wine selection
This is one of the 3 remaining city gates from the 12th century, still connected to the city wall. Behind the gate you will find the church, Basílica de La Macarena built in baroque style. The gate and remains of the city wall are an amazing sight for the historically interested in the neighborhood of Macarena where you also find some few tapas bars near by for lunch. The city wall is protected by a metal fence not allowing to get close to the wall on the one side. The gate allows cars unfortunately to pass under it and decreases the historical experience of the total visit.
An ancient arch connected to an ancient wall, not a lot to say really, It's a very nice gateway into the old city of Seville. The Bacillica next to it though is something else entirely and the interior is far superior to even the Cathedral. 😎👍
There was an arch, that was it. There's a beautiful church next to it if you want to see/pray but don't go to see an arch or wall.
