The Genoan Gates
Soprana's Gate (from Superana), also known as St Andrew's Gate, is one of the most important stoned mediaeval architecture of the town. Not far from this gate there's the presumed Christopher Columbus' house. The Latin inscription in the gate arch can be soon noticed: in the name of omnipotent God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen. I'm kept tabs by soldiers, surrounded by splendid walls and I chase my enemy darts thanks to my value. If you bring peace, you can approach these gates, if you're looking for war, you'll sadly give up. The South, the West, The North and the East know of the great tremors of war in which I, Genoa, have prevailed[...]. There are also other gates that undoubtedly deserve to be mentioned, such as the St Peter's one, the main gate of the West in the past time and the Serravalle's one, situated near the St Lawrence's cathedral.
