The west gate of the medieval city, symmetrical to Porta Soprana, with the two cylindrical towers that frame the pointed arch.
Still today you enter from the southwest corner, along the sea, cross the whole city along the main roads of 1000 years ago, up to the Porta Soprana, at the northeast corner. Once brought to light, after having been incorporated into the Renaissance and Baroque palaces, it indicated the permanence of an entire medieval city, hidden among the façades (rebuilt in the following centuries) but still legible along the main streets.
