Porta Soprana

porta soprana

Today we’re still roaming the streets of Genoa and we’re admiring one of the may gates in the city. Genoa has a lot of medieval buildings and it’s also nicknamed „La Superba” (The Superb One), so you can imagine how excited I was to visit it. The city of Genoa dates back from the 9th century and throughout its tumultuous history, had several lines of walls that were it’s defense – „Nine Century Walls”, „Barbarossa Walls”, „Fourteen Century Walls”, „Sixteen Century Walls” and  the „New Walls”. This is the best known gate in the city – Porta Soprana, that literally welcomes tourists in the medieval center.
