Porta Ticinese (medievale)

Together with the medieval Porta Nuova in Manzoni street, the ancient Porta Ticinese is one of the two medieval gates of the city that still exist in the modern Milan. Originally built in the twelfth century, the structure was restored in 1861 by Camillo Boito that inserted two lateral arches next to the only original access. The medieval Porta Ticinese is sited near the Basilica of Saint Lawrence and the homonymous Saint Lawrence columns.
