Principia Tarsatica – the Old Gate
Rijeka’s inhabitants were right when they called this ancient monument the Gate, while the name of the Roman arch was gradually accepted since Classicism, when it started to be used following research and documentation. The Old Gate is not a Roman arch, but the characteristic main entrance to the center of late antique Tarsatica Command, over whose ruins rose the medieval Rijeka. Principia represented a supply base and a starting point of the Alpine cloister, headquarters, dozens of kilometers of defensive walls, towers and the like.
