The Puerta del Cambrón is also known as the Puerta de los Judíos, as it gives entrance to the old Jewish quarter, or Puerta de Santa Leocadia, as it displays a sculpture dedicated to this saint on its back. The popular name of the Cambrón is due to the growth of brambles of this name that once grew in its surroundings.

It is in the Renaissance style, with two pairs of towers and two arches, and stone and brick construction. It is declared a Site of Cultural Interest.
