About Porta Nigra, Trier

One of the most visited historical monuments in Trier, Porta Nigra stands impressive with its massive structure. It is a large city gate in Trier and is today the largest Roman city gate north of the Alps. The origin of its name in the Medieval Ages was due to its weathered dark colour of the stone. An unfinished project of its own time, the gate, nonetheless, was used for several centuries till the end of Roman era as an entrance to the town. Porta Nigra was designated as a World Heritage site in 1986. Its present appearance is the result of reconstruction done under the regime of Napoleon. The features of Porta Nigra are:

  • On the south side, you can see the remains of Roman Columns. They give an impression of the Roman Street which they must have served as originally.
  • An upper floor where the actors portray the character of a centurion, a Roman army officer, in full sartorial set up.
  • Stone blocks, of which the biggest weigh up to six metric tons.
