The most ancient part of Milan, founded in 502 B.C (Mediolanum) that was surrounded by defensive walls at the end of the Roman Republic (between III° and IV° century B.C.), is enclosed by city gates and Pusterle starting from the two main roads that converged towards the Roman Milan, founded by the Galli Insubri, you can identify: Porta Romana (Missori Square) city gate, Porta Vercellina (Magenta Avenue) city gate and Porta Ticinese (Carrobbio) city gate. There were six main city gates: Romana, Ticinese, Orientale, Comasina, Nuova and Vercellina. Following these six main city gates, other 12 minor city gates, called "Pusterle", were built, today the only one which still remains is the S. Ambrogio’s city gate.
Starting from Porta Ticinese and the adjacent Porta Romana it is possible to reach important historical churches such as San Lorenzo alle Colonne, Sant’ Ambrogio, Santa Maria delle Grazie, the Sforzesco Castle and the Milan Dome (with more than 3000 statues and 135 steeples). From street to street, wherever you are, you are never far from an ancient hamlet, a monument, a palace, a square, a secret garden well worth taking the time to see.
