The Arch of San Maurizio

The arch was the ancient Porta di San Maurizio al Ponte and was part of the thirteenth-century walls . Its name comes from the church of San Maurizio, known by the people as the Church of Samoreci, and from the nearby drawbridge
The gate that can be seen today is a rounded arch with an attic supported by corbels and with two niches on the inside, where the busts of the Medici grand dukes are located.
