Palermo Sicily is not what you imagine. Walking from Porta Nuova to Four square

Palermo Sicily IS NOT WHAT YOU IMAGINE – Walking from Porta Nuova to Four square English Version 🇬🇧
Porta Nuova is a monumental city gate of Palermo, Italy, located next to the Palazzo dei Normanni. It has been the most important access to Palermo by land for centuries. The gate was built in the manieristic style, with construction starting in 1583 and completed in 1669. It represents the entrance of the Cassaro, the main street of the city, from Corso Calatafimi, the road to Monreale. The gate was originally called “Porta dell’Aquila” but became known as “Porta Nuova” after Charles V’s visit to Palermo in 1535. The gate was destroyed in 1667 and rebuilt in 1669 in the same style. It is considered the most beautiful and main entrance to the city of Palermo
