Porta Leoni


Detail of Porta Leoni. Again, another example of history layers in town: roman, medieval and recent (probably XVIII century). I find this corner absolutely enchanting...

Oh,I love places like this! I was in Bath, England and there was a similiar building where they excavated and you could see each historical layer. It's fascinating!

I love them too! I always wonder how people lived back then. Seeing all the layers provides so much scope for the imagination, as Anne of Green Gables would say.
