When you look at this arch it takes you right into Roman times - you can almost hear the swords clashing. It is beautifuly looked after, and the low trees that flank it provide welcome shade on hot days and a refuge from the wind and rain in the winter. Standing in front of the arch on one side you look over the hills and can imagine what it must have been like in those times, scouring the landscape for the enemy, while on the other you look towards the Corso and Benevento proper.

Very rare item, one of the very few Roman triumphal arches left in very good condition and must be preserved.

This arch from the roman times shows on one side the works of the emperor (the roman side) and on the other side the works of the local people,
