It has been traditionally considered to be an arch commemorating the passage of Isabella I of Castile through the village of Yecla on 4th January 1488. In fact, it is a construction element which divided the village into two different urban areas: the Jewish quarter and the Christian quarter. Next to the arch there is a Neo-gothic alcove probably dating from the end of the 19th century or the beginning of the 20th. Inside the alcove there is an image of Saint Blas. The devotion to this saint dates back to the end of the 16th century.
