Crete senesi | Buonconvento, Porta Senese, a medieval gate

Buonconvento is almost completely surrounded by walls. The construction of the walls and the nine 9 watch towers and two gates started in 1371. Seven towers still remain today. The Porta Romana on the southerns side of Buonconvento was destroyed in 1944 by the retreating Germans. The Porta Senese with its heavy wooden doors and iron fittings is still standing on the northern side of the historical center and is now perpetually open.
