Daroca: Puerta Baja o Fondonera Zaragoza. Aragon. Spain.

Monumento Daroca



La Puerta Baja de la muralla de Daroca es una de las construcciones urbanas de carácter defensivo más bellas y mejor conservadas de Aragón. La Fondonera, como también se la conoce, se terminó de construir en 1452. Está formada por dos torreones laterales de planta rectangular rematados por almenas. La cara frontal de cada torreon mide unos seis metros de lado, y los laterales, 12 metros. Las almenas muestran un perfil escalonado. Se unen a la torre mediante unas ménsulas de tres escalones, con pequeños arcos.

El arco de la entrada tiene una bóveda estrellada en su interior. En la fachada luce un escudo de tiempos de Carlos V, pero se observan elementos más antiguos, como las dovelas del arco primitivo. Una galería de ventanas de arco semicircular servían para iluminar el interior. Bajo el alero del tejado, la Puerta Baja luce una faja de ladrillo con aspilleras.

Junto a la Fondonera encontramos otro de los monumentos más famosos de Daroca: la Fuente de los Veinte Caños.
