The Arco de los Blanco was known as Puerta de Tierra, not to be confused with the current one, and was located right beside the village`s castle.

To the original arched opening different constructions were added, which transformed its original appearance. Its name comes from a family that rose in the 17th century; a chapel in the passage of the arch dedicated to the Virgen de los Remedios, which today does not remain.

The exterior porche with pointed arches gave access to the Royal butchers, under whose plot has been localized part of the attached units to the scene of the Roman Theater.
