Description

Porta St Sebastian, whose original name was Porta Appia, is the largest door of the Aurelian Walls of Rome. The current name was given due to its proximity to the church of St Sebastian's outside the Walls and the Catacombs of St Sebastian. Originally, when people passed through the door, a small marking would be left to record their journey. Under the influence of Emperor Charles V, the door became a sort of triumphant arch, with statues and decorations that emphasized its magnitude.
