Rome Sights

Porta Pinciana (Pincian Gate)

  • Building/Architectural Site

Fodor's Review

Framed by two squat, circular towers, the gate was constructed in the 6th century. Here you can see just how well the Aurelian walls have been preserved and imagine hordes of Visigoths trying to break through them. Sturdy as the walls look, they couldn't always keep out the barbarians: Rome was sacked three times during the 5th century alone.
