Travel Tips for Rimini

The Galliana Gate (Torrione dei Cavalieri)

by gordonilla

I came across this architectural gem quite by chance as I was walking back to the railway station.

The gateway dates from the 1200s, and it was used to link the city with the harbour along the River Marecchia. It was also part of the defensive wall during the 13h century by Frederick II. It was a replacement for an earlier gate which was closer to the city.

It was restored in the 15th century by Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta (1417-1468). In the early 1900s there were Maltesta coins discovered during excavations.

The gateway was closed in the 16th century and was replaced by a tower - the Knight's Tower.
