Next to the Portal Nou gate, the Carmelina Sánchez Cutillas Square pays homage to Altean authoress of the 50’s Generation, who portrayed the streets of Altea in her book “Matèria de Bretanya”. The second remaining gate, the Portal Nou, also known as the Puerta del Mar, was opened to the east in the mid-eighteenth century due to the importance of the Fishing Quarters.
