  • The millennial culture, the glory of the Empire or the great beauty of every small town, noble palace or ruin that the Eternal City guards are not enough. Of the series, we do not miss anything, in Rome, we also have the Magic Door! It is just behind Piazza Vittorio and has always attracted my curiosity for the esoteric symbols that are engraved there. Many have tried to decipher its meaning, in vain. There remains a thick halo of mystery for the unsolved riddle. Being here, in front of the evocative stone, hermetic, alchemical or heavenly structure that you want, I suffer the charm, is evident. It's going to be mere collective hysteria, sure... but here is hidden a secret that waits nothing but to be revealed. Whoever walked through this door never returned in his time. He disappeared with the catalytic substance symbol of alchemy, capable of healing the corruption of matter: the stone of philosophers.

  • Here you won't find tickets for a lot of money or tourists in droves. person. A simple and slightly outdated park and at the bottom the remains of a house that of a Marquis and his magical door... esoteric atmosphere of a place occupied by a few cats. Lovers of unusual sites and off-course classics are welcome... of course the story associated with it is just as mysterious. To see even if you can only access the site 10 meters away

  • Small and unassuming in the middle of a slightly dodgy looking park. If you're going past have a look and take a photo, bit I wouldn't specially make the trip.  more »

  • It's under construction, so you won't get enter to the park - you can still see it through the fences, but only a few wall remains. The atmosphere of the place is pretty nice with local flower stalls.
  • This would be 5 stars if it was open. A lot of reviews say dangerous/need repair etc which is why the park is closed. This area is still worth a visit and the wild birds in the trees are nice to see.
  • Porta Magica, the rests of what used to be Villa Palombara, a park dating back to the second half of the 17th century... its legend and its past are fascinating, its present, though, disconcerting...
  • Only manage to snap some photo outside as the area is closed and unaccessible.
  • It was closed. Unfortunately we couldn't see anything.
