Porta Nuova is the city gate of Verona.
The gate was erected in 1535-1540 as a defensive fortification of the city. The author of the project was the architect Sanmikeli, who also built the Porta Palio gate.
In 1854, the gate was rebuilt by the Austrians, who received Verona at the Vienna Congress. At that time, the gates were faced with tuff, and side chapels were also attached to them. During the reconstruction, only the central part of the gate retained its original appearance. The cornerstone, located in the central part of the gate arch, was decorated with the image of the mythological god Jupiter.
Porta Nuova street starts from the gate leading to the main square of Verona – Piazza Bra.
Porta Nuova, along with other attractions in Verona, have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
