Porta Lecce, Defensive east wall, Church of Christ

Porta Lecce, built by Ferdinand of Aragon around 1464 but redefined in viceroy times as proved by the presence of the Emperor Charles V’s emblem, is a remarkable document of military architecture.

Porta Lecce, built by Ferdinand of Aragon around 1464 but redefined in viceroy times as proved by the presence of the Emperor Charles V’s emblem, is a remarkable document of military architecture. The entrance is flanked and defended, to the west and east, by opposing curtains that, connecting to the door, define an almost absolute protection space. In the immediate vicinity, rises the Church of Christ of the Dominicans with annexed convent, which results to have been completed in 1232 although later altered for the construction of the east defensive walls.
