Porta Pia is an old city gate deidcated to Pope Pius VI. The gate was built in 1789 and while the side facing to the port is a typical baroque gate, the side facing to the town is kept simple. In between there is an ugly something, probably from the 20th century?

Directions: Via XXIX Settembre, south to the port, close to the old town and next to the old ?La Mole Vanvitelliana? fort.
