ARCH OF CAROLA

The Arch of Carola, also known as St. Peter’s gate, is in the heart of Ancona, just near Piazza del Plebiscito. It was built in 1221 by magister Philippus, as attested by a plaque.

The gate is made up of large blocks of limestone that used to be part of the city walls that stretched from Cappuccini Hill to the Church of Santa Maria della Piazza.

In front of the gate stood the ancient Church of Sant’Agnese, which was turned in 1739 into the private residence of the Languidara family of Sicilian origins, who introduced the art of silk weaving.

Reasons to visit:

  • A little gem in the heart of the city
  • It is easily accessible
  • On the way to Piazza del Plebiscito
