Roman gate of Portaria Acquasparta - (TR)

Portaria It is a town of 425 inhabitants 6 km away from the town of Acquasparta.
It is located along the ancient diverticulum of the Via Flaminia, between Carsulae and Spoleto.
The area has probably been inhabited since Roman times, as evidenced by numerous findings in the surrounding area, there is a Latin inscription and a human head in compact limestone, found in the nearby Capo d’Acqua, dating back to the 2nd century BC. and a Roman tomb with clay material at the Portaria crossroads. The ancient name was Porcaria and testifies to the existence in this area, rich in woods suitable for grazing pigs, of a primitive pastoral settlement and appears for the first time in 1093 when the descendants of Count Arnolfo donated two monasteries with their annexes "in curte de Porcaria, omnia qualiter pertinet in comitatu Narniensi".
The Roman gate, of mighty architecture, is adorned with the Portaria coat of arms, above there is a commemorative plaque and, even higher, the coat of arms of the nobles of Cesi.
