old building, Bologna: 11 reviews and 28 photos
Favorite thing: There were twelve so-called Porte (the city gates), in the medieval times of Bologna nine of which still exist. Actually, Porta was a part of the fortification, the watch tower and the entrance into the protected city area. By following the remaining gates, you can get idea how strong the circle-shape city walls were build. Unfortunatelly, not many remains of the strong city walls could be seen nowadays.
As it usually happened, after the medieval city walls lost their importance in the defence of the city, local people used its materials for the constructions of new houses and city buildings.
Directions: City centre (Town Hall)
