The Porta Urbica or the Urbica Gate was built by Dionysius The Great to create a gateway to his fortress of the Ortigia. The Porta Urbica with a length of thirty kilometres used to run from Orotiga to the Eurialo Catle and now the ruins can be identified from the excavation of Via XX Settembre. You can see the base of the two quadrangular eight metre towers here; the towers give access to the forked road connecting the temple of Athena and Apollo. The uniqueness of the Urbica Gate lies in the fact that it’s the only fortification that speaks on behalf of the Dionigian era.
