This is an old city gate built in Renaissance style. Once it had been joined to the city walls, but when those were expanded in the 15th century, the gate was left free-standing. Now it just looks like some kind of Arc du Triomphe. The two towers symbolise honor and virtue; on the door you’ll find the 16th century coat of arms of Charles V, and just close to the gate is the church of Santa Caterina a Formiello. There’s not much else to see though.

  • Well preserved city gate. The square is vivid day and night, with all kinds of people hanging around or passing by. Anyways, it's not somewhere you want to go alone.

  • Very busy a bit hard to identify some more signage would be good.

  • Nice place to seat for the moment here and think about plane to sightseeing city

  • Real master piece of medieval fortification.

  • Nice bit of history.
