Built to commemorate the city's reconstruction after the 1755 earthquake. It has six columns (some 11 m high) and is adorned with statues of various historical figures. Originally designed as a bell tower, the building ultimately transformed into elaborate arch within more than century-long delays. Next year will be cleaned and will be allowed to visit the upper part of the arch, looking forward to do it!
