La Puerta de la Villa de Cartagena (España) es la única puerta de acceso a la ciudad que queda en pie. Hace un par de años hice un trabajo de Representación del Patrimonio sobre esta puerta. Trabaje en la restitución fotogramétrica con la intención de tomar datos y plasmarlos en un dibujo 2d en cad lo mas fiel posible al monumento. El trabajo mostró capas sucesivas de restauraciones y consolidaciones, además encontré unas bellisimas fotos antiguas que permitian comparar el estado actual con las sucesivas etapas.

The interesting thing about the monument is that it was not originally built where it is appreciated today. But it was in the eighteenth century itself when it was moved with the intention of preserving it and using it as access to the castle.

The transfer was made due to the construction of the walls of Carlos III and its use as access to the city was replaced by the monumental San José gate. The sensitivity of dismantling the monument stone by stone and transferring it to the new access to the castle, contrasts with the disappearance of the doors that succeeded it. That is, one hundred years later, in the last years of the 19th century, the three monumental gates of the Carlos III wall were demolished and their stones disappeared.

You can see the work in its entirety in issuu at the following link, it is quite interesting if you like the story.
