  • This arch was erected for Emperor Charles V. It s certainly worth seeing at both sides. At one side you see the gigantic figures of Arabic types. Through the gate you see at the end of Corso Vittorio ...  more »
  • One of the doors of Europe's finest civic. See it on the side of Independence Square, which offers a wonderful prospect: Ashlar arch, statues of Moors and various masks, porch and tiled roof with the Eagle, symbol of the city. Great prelude for a walk on the backbone of the historical centre, Corso Vittorio Emanuele.

  • It is the main gateway to the old town, adjacent to the Palace of the Normans and at 200 m from the Cathedral. Rebuilt by Gaspare Guercio in 1668, in Mannerist style. Porta Nuova, for centuries the most important gateway, really impressive and beautiful. It is worth seeing.
