It was also historically known as the gate of the Jews.
This gate owes its name to the spiny buckthorn bushes all around it which are known in Spanish as cambroneras.
It is built over the remains of a Visigoth gate, and the current structure is in the Renaissance style with a square floor plan. On the interior façade there is a statue of Santa Leocadia attributed to Berruguete. This is the only gate open to motor traffic.
