Converted today in the Centre of Interpretation of the coat of arms of the city. The name of this tower recalls the legend of the re-conquest of the city by Alvar Fáñez de Minaya in 1085. The pentagonal tower, built at the beginning of the 14th century, was known for centuries as the Fairs Gate or Christ of the Fairs Gate, as it gave access to the sites where the city fairs were held.
