The Porta Romana

10

The Porta Romana was the entrance to the western city of Aquinum. It is a monumental gate with a single arch, a square, made of large blocks of travertine. Can be seen today, next to the Via Latina, the base part of the elevation of the jambs and the attack of the walls, as well as several blocks belonging to the same door and the walls, preserved to the sides and above the structures.

The door is an integral part of the defensive circuit of the Roman colony. The walls are now only partially preserved in its path, but it is easy to read in all its historical path from aerial photos and is passed down from literary sources.
