    Porta Nigra

    Landmark
    Open Details
    This monument is the most important in the city and is worth seeing at night because of its illumination, which makes it even more impressive.
    It was built in 180 AD by the Romans. They used white sandstone from the nearby quarries, the black colour is due to the action of micro-organisms on the surface of this material.
    It was one of the entrances to the walled city, other gates like this one that made up the wall were demolished in order to use their materials for other constructions, but it was at this gate that the hermit Simeon settled in the 11th century, then in his honour the gate was converted into a two-storey church and this fact caused it to be preserved.

It is not known exactly whether this piece is authentic and due to its poor state of preservation it is not exhibited to the public.
