This gate, also called Porta a Levante, connects with Abruzzo, through the pass of Forca d’Acero, and led to the “Bar”, the ancient “customs” point before entering the residential complex.

The pointed arch is typical of the Late Gothic and comes from the influence of Cantelmos who at that time ruled these lands.

This gate is a “cult” place because here the patron saint is “overlooking” to give his blessing to the town. It is a fascinating vantage point to photograph the town.
