Spanish Arch

The name is a reminder of the city's trading links with Spain. The Spanish Arch was apparently part of a bastion made up of four arches intended to protect the town's quaysides. A small part of the medieval town wall can still be seen on the south side of the arch. The City Museum is located nearby.
