An impressive roman structure right in the middle of the city. It used to have another arch but it collapsed many decades ago. Most of the reliefs are in good condition, a testament to the craftsmen's artistry. It is also one of the busiest meeting points of the locals.

This was the beginning of the ceremonial road that led to the Rotunda. Nice to look at but nothing to do here but move on to the ruins of the palace and then the Rotunda very close by.

It's the place everyone meets. If not the main meeting point for everyone in the city maybe the one all the students from Uni's and schools meet. There is so much to see around the neighborhood. Walking with a coffee on your hand and seeing it's just magical. Even if it's windy or cloudy still you can tour around this... More

A beautiful piece of history in the center of life. I thought it would be sth more interesting. I really regret that it is not treated with more respect. Many pigeons are sitting on it and destroying its beauty.

Not a lot to see here unless you're a real history buff or archeologists. Still this small place is well preserved after more than 1,500 years. It is a major part of the cities total preservation efforts and worth a look.

This is a beautiful spot to walk through, and worth lingering to admire the fabulous marble carvings on the insides of the arches. It's very photogenic.

This is the arch in the middle of the city. You see it driving down the main street. Amazingly they have managed to keep the graffiti artists off it so far.
