The two Tower's in my photo are known as the Cow Gate. This was the main western access into Genoa city. This city gate was built the same time as the city walls, as they were needed to prevent invasion from the Barbarossa enemy. It leads into Via Del Campo, which is the street I walked down after passing through the Tower. This area was once full of Prostitute's.
The name is unusual, evidently named after a family by the name of "Cow" who lived here.
Address: Via del Campo
