  • Gates, in fact two. Three hundred meters between them. Moreover, Anti-gate Kamolija (Camilla) built substantially later to enhance protection against Florence in the year 1270. By the time the main gate of Kamolija there were almost two millennia. The name Gates gave soldiers, who according to legend sent his nephews to search for Romulus Senio and Ascanio. Soldiers found no one and started to build the city. It is necessary to understand the possible wrath of the founder of Rome. Architecturally the port Kamolija outstrip Anti-port. The current gate only exist from the 17th century, the previous destroyed in the siege of Siena. After the loss of independence at the entrance from the outside rulers of Florence, Medici coat of arms hung with podobostrastnoj inscription in Latin: Cor tibi magis pandit sena, which means "Siena shows heart, and it is this gate."

  • Most likely this will be the entrance to the city if you are coming from the train station. If you come by car, you will need to leave the car on a public parking because you will not be allowed to trespass it (or if so, you'll get a nasty ZTL fine worth €100 or so)
  • One of the gates of Medieval Siena, the northernmost and then one from which they could reach the enemy's armed Guelph Florence. A sign on the door reads "COR MAGIS TIBI SENA PANDIT" meaning "a heart bigger (the door that you're going through) Siena opens". But knowing the character of the Sienese deeply in love and jealous of their city a translation a little "free" of writing (especially given the location to Florence) could be "before you open up her door Siena opens up (literally) heart ". But this is just a "joke". The door as you can observe it today dates back to 1604. The name CAMOLLIA according to legend is derived from the name of da Camogli, sent by Romulus (founder of Rome) to kill his nephews (sons of slain Oar) Aschio and Senio (founders) who settled in this area. Outside and inside the door (not far from where you can admire "the Gateway") develops the Sovereign territory of the Contrada Dell'istrice (whose motto is "Sol for Defense I sting")

  • Historic ruin, well preserved until today. Still remains one of the entrances to the inner city.
