Portoni della Bra

This gateway comprises a pentagonal tower (dating back to the reign of Gian Galeazzo Visconti) to imposing Romanesque arches and an impressive clock.

The visitors, going up Corso Porta Nuova, is greeted by the spectacle of the gateway and its battlements framing the tall Carega mountains in the distance.

If you want a closer look at the gateway and its battlements and a bird’s eye view of Piazz Bra, we suggest you to go to the top floor of the Museo Lapidario Maffeiano (entrance to the Portoni’s left).


Address: Piazza Bra, 37121 Verona
