Porta Romana: Milan’s Roman Gate (Sophisticated Milan Series 3)

Porta Romana
Milan’s Roman Gate
Sophisticated Milan Series 3

Few steps away from our apartment is
a square called Piazza Medaglie d’Oro,

...is a 16th century  former gate of Milan.

Its origin is traced back to the Roman walls
surrounding the city with several Roman
gates built around the ancient fortified area.

Porta Romana was then the first and the
main imperial entrance to the city of Milan.

…as it was the starting point of the
road leading to the Ancient Rome.

The Roman gate is in conjunction
with several major ancient roads-

…that all lead to the Doumo, considered-

...as the heart an soul of the city of Milan.
