18 Herculaneum Gate in Pompeii, Italy

In the northwestern corner of Pompeii is the Herculaneum Gate which dates back to around 80 BC. Its layers of stones and bricks are a Roman building technique called Opus Listatum. The archways on either side were designed for pedestrians. Also called Porta Ercolano, this gate is approached by Via delle Tombe. Once inside the city, the street becomes Via Consolare.
