Porta Vecchia is one of the oldest gateways to the town

Porta Vecchia is one of the oldest gateways to the town. It stands tall in the centre of the Rione Rocca with a completely Renaissance style. The gateway is covered with a series of hand-worked peperino stone blocks, placed in sequence with staggered rows. The horizontal and vertical joints of the stone blocks appear deep and set back from the facade. On the sides of the gateway we find two metal shields painted in black and white, the classic identifying colours of the district where it is found, and with the engraved initials of “Rione Rocca”.
