  • This gate of the wall of the Vatican State is located in the point highest call Hill Vaticana. This ancient gate of century XV is very well preserved, although it was closed approximately in the year 1748. It was closed by its lack of use, since any street of the city was driving to the door. Over the door Pertusa is seen in stone coat of arms of the Medici family and the Papal keys. Pope Pius IV, who send it to build was Medici last name but not the famous Florentine family saga. Even so, allowed the use of the coat of arms.

  • It's a door to the Vatican Museums. What can one say? The steps opposite are a rendezvous for many tours of the Museums.
  • Wonderful
  • It is worth to walk around the Vatican to see how high walls this place has to protect the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. It looks like hey had a lot to worry about and hid to build such walls.
  • Hiking around Vatican City's wall !!!
  • Peace if they had not allowed the transit of the bus
