Porta Maggiore

City gate

IT |


The Porta Prenestina or Porta Maggiore is one of the eastern gates in the ancient but well-preserved 3rd century Aurelian Walls of Rome. Through the gate ran two ancient roads: the Via Praenestina and the Via Labicana. The Via Prenestina was the eastern road to the ancient town of Praeneste (modern Palestrina). The Via Labicana (now called the Via Casilina) heads southeast from the city.
