Gate of Saint Nicholas, Florence: Overall view
Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
The only tower gate to survive at full height, since the hill of San Miniato offered a natural protection from artillery over the centuries. The battlements were replaced in the late 19th century. It was the defense point on the banks of the Arno river.
