Summary

The Arco del Cristo, closed in the 1st century, is the only one of the gates in the Roman wall which has stood the test of time to be with us here today. Open to the east, in the lower part of the Monumental City, for centuries it also served as the arch of the Jews, providing access to the Jewish district and possibly connecting it to the graveyard or cemetery. It is worth going outside the wall to admire the proportions of the gate and tower of Christ accompanying it.
