Porta Garibaldi
Print Friendly

The surrounding wall that defended the village from the 17th century plague has four gates: Porta Crocifisso to the east, Porta San Rocco to the west, Porta San Filippo or “Pipituna” to the north and Porta Palermo to the south receives traffic from Enna.  This was further legacy of Prince Branciforti to the city he founded. The first three were eliminated between 1875 and 1877; Porta Palermo survived and was named Porta Garibaldi after the inevitable passage of the hero of the two worlds. It is a gate with a round arch overlooking the entrance of the Botanical Garden, covered with square blocks. It faces the “Piano San Cristoforo” or “Piazza Sottana” closed in turn from the Church of Our Lady of Carmelo and the Granfonte.
