 Arco de San JuanHoy conocido como "de San Juan" y originalmente como
"Arco de San Cristóbal" se encuentra en la antigua salida al Camino Real a Campeche. Es el de mayores dimensiones de los tres que hoy permanecen en pie (los otros dos son los arcos "del Puente" y "de Dragones") y
en su cresta, rematada con tres picos, resguarda una hornacina con la imagen de San Cristóbal. Su construcción se atribuye al ingeniero militar Don Manuel Jorge de Zezera, durante el año 1690, fecha en la cual se encontraba gobernando la península el Capitán General Don Juan José de la Bárcena.

known as "de San Juan" and originally as the "Arch of San Cristóbal", this arch was at the old exit to the Camino Real to Campeche. Of the three arches remaining today (the other two being the arches of "del Puente" and "de Dragones"), it has the largest dimensions. At its crest, crowned with three peaks, it holds a vaulted niche with the image of San Cristóbal. Its construction is attributed to military engineer Don Manuel Jorge de Zezera, during 1690, year in which Capitan General Don Juan José de la Bárcena was governing the peninsula.
