About Spalentor

Spalentor also called the "Gate of Spalen" is one of the three surviving gates, with a facade facing away from the City, Spalentor is decorated with the figures of the Madonna and two prophets. The once-grand wall, bearing six such portals in the 15th century was demolished in the 19th century, destroying three gates. The fortification of the town was done as a protection measure, making these gates the main entrance to the City.

The Spanlentor has become an essential landmark over time; it is one of the most glorious gates that is also one of the leading Tourist attractions in Basel. The gate has the 15th century St. Peter's Church and the 16th Century Botanical Garden on either side along with an old letterbox with the Basel pigeon emblem and a clock to admire.
