  The Porta Praetoria in Regensburg
by Paul2001
 
 

Regensburg was a Roman settlement and there are many old if small Roman ruins scattered about the city. The Porta Praetoria is one such monument. This archway was built by the Romans in A.D. 179. It was an entrance to the the Roman settlement of Castra Regina. To the left of the archway you can see more of the watchtower that flanked the gateway.
