PORTA FIORITA (Gate Fiorita)
HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION
The oldest door in the San Pietro neighborhood is certainly Porta Fiorita. The door was closed due to the street being lowered and became difficult to enter the city with wagons and livestock. The door was replaced by Porta San Pietro. Only in 1970, during restoration work to the walls, the door was reopened. Crossing the door you can quickly reach the main church of the neighborhood.
