With its false air of a triumphal arch, perhaps this majestic door intrigues you? In a route that will take you from this one, one of the last gates of the city, to the heart of the "park with red gates", you will discover its history and that of its district which has undergone many changes. You will embark on a journey through time between the 17th and 21st centuries.
