Porta S. Angelo

Average Reviews


It is the only surviving gate from the medieval period with a pointed arch, machicolations for the drawbridge and stone projections with restored battlements.

It dates back to the 1380 resolution to restore the defences of the Castle of Bastia reinforced by 17 bastions.

Dette opere These works were, according to the reasoning of the times, carried out with excellent judgement and no expense spared. (A. Cristofani)
