Dalt Murada and gardens of the Mirador

The path we have taken is known by the name of "Dalt Murada", and from here we can see what were once the boundaries of the Roman city which stretched from the palace of La Almudaina to the eastern end of the Episcopal palace. On the southern façade of this building, looking towards the sea, we can see a walkway with Modernist-style guard posts which are attributed to the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, as well as the iron railings of some windows. The wall we can see at the foot of the cathedral is the old Roman city wall, which was transformed during the Middle Ages and totally rebuilt over the course of the centuries. In fact, the whole sea front of the fortified city was reconstructed in the 18th century with the new city wall on top of the one we can see now, built on top of land reclaimed from the sea. The highlights of this structure are the guard posts that have a Baroque form. The area known as ses Voltes is a former barracks completed in 1802 and refurbished by the architects Elies Torres and José A. Martínez Lapeña between 1983 and 1991, for leisure and cultural use.
