Gate of the Kingdom

The Kingdom gate is an arch of well-squared stones and apparently worked without ties to the rest of the buildings.

It takes its name from its position towards the Kingdom of Naples and was originally the secondary gate of the village and the nearby apse of the church was one of the defense towers.

Today its particular shape makes it a true work of art in the historical center.
