The City Gate

Next to the church of St. Fosca, the main city gate is located. In the past, it represented the main entrance to the fortified town, which expanded outside the old city walls in the 19th century. The Romanesque gate was built in the 13th century and used to be part of the city walls. A stone plaque above the gate is a relief with a miniature of the lion of St. Mark, the symbol of the Venetian Republic. The lion’s paws hold a closed book, which means that it was carved while the Venetian Republic was at war. At the time of peace, the lions would keep in its paws an open book with the Latin inscription: PAX TIBI MARCE EVANGELISTA MEUS, meaning: Peace to you, my Mark the Evangelist.
