Depicted is the 'Koepoort' ('Cow Gate' in English), situated in the town of Middelburg, Zeeland, The Netherlands.

In the past the old part of Middelburg had 8 of such gates. This 'Koepoort', built in 1735, is the only remaining one.

My entry for the 'Gates' contest.

Edit: referring to Richie comment below, this gate was in the past an integral part of the fortification (inclusive a moat) of the old (mostly medieval) Middelburg.

If that is the gate the cows used, I wonder what the barn was like.

Wow!, Cornelus, this is for me a great surprise. I did
not knew that you had an "Arch of Triumph" in the town of
Middelburg in the province of Sealand.
Fantastic shot of this fine building.
Wish you good luck in the 'Gates' contest.

This is an impressive "gate" - resembles many building entrances I've seen. A wonderful entry for the contest.

That is a beautiful gate SEA, and I can only imagine what the fortress looked like. It must have been formidable.
Excellent entry for the contest.
Good luck.
