    Entrance to the port in the town. Looks nice - you can go through and pass through. Joins the other attractions. More to say is not for Otto ordinary consumer.

  • one of the two gates on via Vittorio Emanuele. bombed during WW2 and rebuilt. from the top there is a nice view of Foro italico
  • Another of the city gates, this one close to a sea promenade and the docks. Very beautiful and worth a visit.
  • Porta Felice In Palermo. Prolongation of Caron from the Church of Portosalvo unto the sea, prepared by the viceroy Marcantonio Colonna in 1581, had necessitated the opening of a new door also gave prestige to urban "novella promenade" (the today's Foro Italico), for which the previous year had begun the work. The foundation stone for the monumental entrance, which was so called from the name of the viceroy's wife happy Orsini, was laid on 6 July 1582. It seems that the author of the original project had been the engineer senatorio Giovan Battista Collipetra.
