  • It was originally built in the 3rd century when it was a vital link in the Roman defenses of the city. Much of its current appearance dates from the age of the Renaissance popes, who retained it as a ...  more »
  • When you head to the Corini Palace in Trastevere, you will walk straight north to the street of the Settimana gate. On the boundary of this gate, the streets change their name to Lunga Ara Street. At the end of the third century, it was incorporated into the walls of the Aurelian, and in the fifteenth century the Pope had built this gate, but he did not know the exact thing to examine without a guidebook. It is true that the Trastevere area has evolved, and in order to get from here to St. Peter's Basilica, it was necessary to break the wall and build a gate there. It seems to have been repaired several times, but the current gate is the newest gate that was rebuilt in the eighteenth century.

  • It was a gate out of Trastevere but small. Is the Trastevere side upper chest wall saw wall so cute. The Bible had been painted on the wall? The scenes 1 do not know what.

  • Named after Septimius Severus and one of the gates of the Aurelian Walls (3rd century)
  • Nice gate
  • Macnifoco
  • A little hidden gem in Rome, as there are so many of. Nothing peculiar, but this is what makes walking in Rome so pleasant. Don't come here just for this place, as there is nothing to actually visit.
  • This gate is 1498 years of construction. The real gate of the third-century Avrelieva walls stood on this place, but the time was merciless to them. Alas, they have not reached our times. The origin of the name of the gate was also lost in the darkness of centuries. They are named after the Emperor Septimia of the north, or in honor of the seventh cohort of the City guard, as the Ancients said: the seventh cohort of Vigiliyev. Now the gate separates the bustling Trastevere from the quiet area of the museums and offices located along the Tiber River.
