Esanatoglia Saint Andrew’s Gate

Saint Andrew’s Gate
The gate was built in the 14th century during the enlargement of the first surrounding wall. The dating is supported by the presence of an emblem of a rampant lion on the north wall dating back to 1313.
In a parchment of the 16th century, kept in the Vatican archives, the gate is represented in a slightly different way than at present; the roof was gabled with slits in the upper part.
Over the centuries, the structure was modified, resulting in its present characteristics that we can admire today. After the earthquake in 1997, the gate was restored with an aim to reinforce it both internally and externally. 14th century

Church of Saint Andrew
The first mention of the original church of Saint Andrew De Platia dates back to 1233, therefore its construction may be traced back to the early years of the 13th century. In 1837, the reconstruction of the church began after the demolition of the original church. In 1851, the church was provided with an organ by Giacinto Colombati. Like the adjacent city gate, the structure was reinforced and renovated after the earthquake in 1997. 19th century
