Awe inspiring building. One of the most iconic of Spello; it seems like time has never passed. Really a must-see attraction.

The entrance of Spello.
Jul 2018 • Couples
Porta Venere was erected in the Augustan age and included in a considerable number of buildings.
The tower-gate complex has been the object of at least two restorations: in the years from ten to twenty, when many buildings of the Middle Ages were demolished, and again in the years 1940-1941.
Porta Venere is closed on the sides by two towers called "Properzio" with a dodecagonal plan.
Made typically of three arches, it is decorated with Doric pilasters, interposed between arches. In the upper part there is a trabeation along the entire length of the door, a unifying motif in the sign of a compositional harmony.
It is also equipped with a cavaedium, a fortification building that provides a double door. The whole area on which the complex stands today was once full of other buildings whose remains can now be seen in the cellars of the houses that run along Via Torri di Properzio .

Twin towers

Re built gate into the delightful city of Spello, tours available around the gate towers. But if you miss the tour you still have a great place to view.

Such a wonderful town to walk around everything so perfectly preserved it is like walking through ancient history. Probably the most interesting town we have seen.

Restored or recreated? (They look like new!)
Sep 2016 • Couples
When restoring ancient ceramics, they ensure that any new parts are clearly different in colour/texture. However, this make-over of the twin towers seems to have been taken too far - they are immaculate, just like the day they were built. They are certainly impressive and photogenic, but hardly count as authentic historic features.

Ancient but in good shape

The gate is in a really good state and isolated from other buildings. You can snap some nice shots here. The whole city is a real sight if you look from the outside.

Walking around the walls you see some amazing sights.

The Roman gateways into Spello are most beautiful and well worth visiting. We strolled up and down various pathe and found that round every corner there were historic sights, mainly Roman.

One of the best small towns in Italy
Nov 2015 • Couples
We've been to many dozens of small towns in Italy over 30 days of travelling and my wife and I both agreed that this town was one of the best. Even though we were there in late Nov. and it was chilly, all the houses had a multitude of plants along the laneways and streets. Lots of small laneways to explore and plenty of parking areas on both sides of the town in the lower section for easy access. Limited parking in the town square.

Wondeful, you just must go
The place is beautiful: Porta Venere and the two towers are wonderful per se, but the landscape and the view over the countryside is gorgeous (especially at sunset).GO!
