Porta Settimiana, Rome

3.7
#280 of 524 in Historic Sites in Rome
Porta Settimiana is one of the gates of the Aurelian walls in Rome (Italy).

It rises at the northern vertex of the rough triangle traced by the town walls - built by Emperor Aurelian in the 3rd century - in the area of Trastevere an up through the Janiculum.

The gate marks the beginning of Via della Lungara and is the only gate, on the right bank of the Tiber (the other ones are Porta Portuensis, no more existing, and Porta San Pancrazio), that rises just in the place where it was built, despite its restorations and rebuildings.
