Porta Palazzo is one of the antique Roman gates entering the town. The real name is Porta Palatina. There are still some remains of the Roman walls, a statue of Emperor Augustus and the remains of the Roman theatre next to the Cathedral where the Holy Shroud is. In the area is located the Porta Palazzo Market, very crowded all the days, Saturdays in particular. They sell everything: food, toys, clothing, furniture, etc. It is a multiethnic market with people and goods from all over the world: Asia, Africa, Europe and South America, for there are many people from all those countries and continents living to Torino.
