This gate was built by Pope Alexander VI Borgia in 1498 to replace a minor passageway in the Aurelian Wall. It connects the long, straight 16th century road of Via della Lungara with one of narrow winding streets of the Trastevere district, Via della Scala.
This is me in front of the gate with Via della Scala as a background
We are in Trastevere, the area where I grow up...I like to walk around here!!!
