The Old Gate of old Montevideo is what is left of the wall that surrounded old town back in the 19th century. This wall protected the people of Montevideo when Argentine General Rosas besieged the city from 1843 to 1851.

Located at the western end of Plaza Independencia, this old stone gateway is all that remains from the destruction of the colonial fort in 1833. The Gateway of the Citadel leads directly to the Paseo de la Ciudad Vieja, the restaurant-lined pedestrian thoroughfare heading toward the old port.
