  • ... to be the sea! This is the port that you meet coming from the sea and leaving immediately, inviting us to see in the distance a long walk through beautiful buildings in the old town

  • Vittorio Emanuele walked towards the sea, at the end of the street is the gate Porta Felice. Gates isn't exactly normal is two towers that can be seen even from afar. Built in the year 1637, these gates have long been the main entrance to the city. Consider them carefully: by city-Baroque traits prevail over the Sea-style is more peculiar Renaissance. Note the Eagles with the emblem of the Spanish kings.

  • Visited during the ways of treasures, one of the ancient gates of Palermo, which dates back to 500, half collapsed because of the bombing of the second world war and then rebuilt. Currently should be the headquarters of the carabinieri tutela patrimonio artistico nucleus. Beautiful scenery, those few times that it is open to the public a visit does not disappoint

  • Offices, during "the ways of treasures" the entrance was opened to the public. From the terrace enjoying spectacular views. On the one hand, the Foro Italico and the sea, on the other, corso Vittorio Emanuele and the city centre. To visit!

  • A witness of a glorious past, of which the city is an orphan.
