"Porta dei Leoni" Porta dei Leoni - Roman City Gate Tip by Willettsworld

 
 

This Roman gate, dating back to the middle of the 1st century BC, gets its name from the sarcophagus surmounted by two lions that today is located in front of it. It belonged to the circle of old city walls and was subject to many changes over the first century after its construction. In the part existing today, hidden by the adjacent building and under the street which is visible from the surface are the remains of one of the two polygonal towers.
