  • The southern entrance to the city of Capua, named thus Naple´s gate at its the direction of that city. It was built during the 16th century  more »
  • Porta Napoli was created by Ambrogio Attendolo at the end of ' 500 to celebrate the reign of Philip II, in view of the modernization of the city fortifications in 1831 the portal was moved from its original location: The new bridge of SS Appia, for Be reassembled on the previous Nugent door made in 1819. A testimony to this is the incompatibility between the external opening and the inside of the door, considerably larger so as to allow the presence of the mechanisms for the drawbridge. The Armilla of the triumphal arch, framed among semi-Doric pillars on pedestal supporting the lintel and the pure Dorian cornice, presents a rich sculptural decoration depicting trophies and winged victories.
