From a distance it doesn't look like much but there still remains some very good detail if studied closely. It must have been a really impressive gateway.
Part of a Roman Wall built in the 3rd century the gate stands oddly in a park without much immediately around it. To see it at it's best stop by and have a look at dusk just as the lights are coming on around it. Then go and hit the many nearby restaurants
