The Porta Asinaria was built as a part of the original Mura Aureliane (Aurelian Walls), its unique tower blocks and guard rooms cause it to stand out from the rest. In 536, General Belisarius led his troops through this gate to retake Rome from the Ostrogoths. Its glory was, however, short lived when, 10 years later, traitors opened this gate to let Totila and his Goths back in to raid the city for a second time.
Belisarius should have remembered to double lock it!
