During its long history, at least since 9th century, Genova had been defended by the walls. Large positions of these walls remain to the present time and Genova has more and longer walls than any other Italian town. The parts of these walls are known by the different names, mostly after the period of its construction.
Mura Nuove, from the 17th century, are the most imposing having length of almost 20 kilometres.
Porta Soprana is the best known gate in the ancient Genova city walls, built in the 12th century as a part of the Mura Barbarossa.
