The Porta Ostiense is a major gate to the city of Rome. The gate was renamed to Porta San Paolo because it led to the St. Paul Basilica, located just outside the city walls.
Located just west of the Pyramid of Cestius along the Mura Aureliane, this gate has a similar history to the Porta Asinaria. In 549, the treason of the Isaurian garrison allowed Totila and his Ostrogoths to enter Rome via this gate and sack the city.
