The Porta Franca (Porta Romea) at Monteriggioni

This gateway is the main entrance to the borgo. It faces the direction of Rome, and stands below a tower with a high pointed arch. In the past it very likely had a drawbridge, that was lowered to bridge a moat that has now disappeared. To the left of the arch is an inscription commemorating the foundation of Monteriggioni in the 1220s, while a plaque on the right celebrates the newly-founded unified state of Italy, in 1860.
