Valmontone. Gates of the city

Before the war in Valmontone there were at least three gates. Porta Romana gate, was completely razed to the ground and only the toponym of the street remains.

The other two are Porta Napoletana and Porta Nuova: the first was a massive fortified medieval gate, with two solid crenellated towers on the sides.

The other was erected at the beginning of Via Nuova at the behest of Camillo Pamphilj, in Baroque style, as a door to the road that led to the square on the top of the hill, on the side of Doria palace. Of this only part of the structure remains and one of the cornerstones.
