This south facing city gate was built in the 16th century as part of the city's Spanish walls. It's name means Gate to the Ticino River. The original gate known as Porta Ticinese is closer to the city center. The structure you see today was created in the early 19th century in neo-classical style (ionic columns and massive tympanum) by Luigi Cagnola. The area is surrounded by cute shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.

Great place to sit by the river, relax, and enjoy the view. During the day there is a nice hustle and bustle, with plenty of shops and restaurants around to entertain you. The evenings are when these arches truly come alive, well lit, with groups of people everywhere enjoying conversation and waterside drinks. A great place to go sit and mellow out.
A nice square to stroll by, with lots of places where you can eat and meet people at night.
Worth going to see if you're walking from the city centre to the canal area.
The square is located in a very good position near the very heart of Milan, very close to the "darsena" and the water-ways Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese. There around you can find places to have a drink, eat good local food or international food, take a walk or relax yourself sitting at a bar. From the square you can walk to Duomo or take the tram to get to the center of the town. It's a very safe place.
