Porta Padovana

Via Porta Padova, Cittadella, (Padova)

The Padova Gate was once the main entrance to Cittadella. Frescoes (the cart of the Carraresi and the coat of arms of Padova  – a red cross on a white field) stand out on the outside walls. The complex consists of 3 gates and a large arms court with a winding staircase in cylindrical masonry. The most characteristic feature of the Padova Gate is the massive “Torre di Malta” (Tower of Malta).
