Northern Gate

NORTHERN GATE (PORTA NORD)

The Northern Gate complex probably looked like a fortified building connected to the walls and built in case of enemy attacks from the sea.
The base of the two square bastions that stand parallel to the road leading to the isle centre and probably dating to the end of the 5th century, are still visible.
The road was divided into two lanes and paved with limestone. It still shows the grooves left by cart wheels.

HOLY AREAS OUTSIDE PORTA NORD

 Here there are two other complexes that are difficult to interpret.
The western one is a building of which only the foundations remain, consisting of stone blocks and cobs.  Opposite to it there is a square-shaped structure with an altar.  The main building has been identified as a small temple.
The eastern complex, on a rectangular area, is surrounded by dilapidated walls and stone blocks dating back to the 6th century B.C.
