Montanara Gate

The Montanara Gate, also called the "Sant'Andrea Gate” dates back to the first century BC. The rounded arch made in sandstone blocks was one of the two openings in the gate that gave access to the city for travellers from the hills along the Via Arretina. The double gateway facilitated the flow of traffic dividing those leaving Arimmum from the Cardus Maximus from those entering it.
