The Spalentor is the grandest and most impressive of the three city gates that still remain of the fortifications dating back to 1400.

In earlier times, many essential supplies destined for the city from Alsace passed through this gate. Its square central tower with adjoining round flanking towers facing outwards from the corners may be seen from afar. This external display is complemented by three figures from the 15th century, the Madonna and two prophets.

This city gate affords a wonderful view over the rooftops of the Old Town of Basel and as far as the Jura heights, the Black Forest and the Vosges.
