On the website by Sevilla in 360 degrees (www.sevillaen360.es) we can find 360 degrees photographic compositions showing the most typical, characteristic and distinctive monuments and places in Seville.

If we click on the link below, we can watch Arco del Postigo (Arch of the Wicket) in 360º (http://goo.gl/maps/obJ1a). The Arch of Postigo (Arch of the Wicket) is also known as Postigo del Aceite (Wicket for Oil), a name it was given since it was the gate through which olive oil arrived in Seville. Together with Macarena Arch is the only presently remaining access of the old city wall. It is located in Almirantazgo Street, by the royal shipyard, and was erected in 1107 by order of emir Ben Yusuf. In the 12th century it was called in Arabic “Bad al-Qatay” (Ships Gate) as the shipyard for building boats were found right beside.
