  • One of the gates of the 3rd enclosure that surrounded Bologna built in XIII century. Pretty door which deserves that we go and see closely, particularly because of the sculptures at the level of the bridge, which represent the devil. The enclosure was destroyed in the early twentieth century because of the development of the city, but especially to give work to the masons who were unemployed. The doors were saved thanks to the mobilization of a few intellectuals (with some exceptions) and restored at the end of the 2000s.

  • Departing from Bologna Railway station Centrale Via della Indipendenza direction we have a traditional town Gates: Porta Galliera. The structure is very well preserved and is income to the Piazza XX Settembre where food festivals are usually held (during our visit we could taste cheeses and wonderful salami), Natale market and installed the famous ice skating rink.

  • From Bologna old town indepenndenza road start at the gate. I think that alone is quite distance from Center Maggiore square in the old town from this gate, so going from station to the old town and not pass it here. But I couldn't sightseeing and enters the city through this gate.

  • nice place. i spent my time here at midnight , near to railway station
  • Really nice building with impressive catacombs, which deserve more care.
  • Pass through to show respect.
  • A monument a little neglected and forgotten. would need more care. Remnant of a forgotten past. Little observed. Surrounded by a small park. Nearby two sculptures of mythological inspiration.
