Arch of the Sergii (Golden Gate)
One of the most beautiful and best preserved monuments of Pula is the Arch of the Sergii built between 29 and 27 BC. It was built by the Sergii family to honor family members who performed official duties in Pula. It is also known under the name Golden Gate because it was leaning against the gate called Porta Aurea, which was named after the gold-colored doors or decorative arches. In the 19th century, due to urbanization, the wall and the gate were torn down so that the city could expand. The Arch of the Sergii is adorned with the Corinthian style, while its motifs are characterized by a strong Hellenistic influence. Today, various cultural events are held next to it. It proudly stands as a testimony of the rich ancient times.
