Roman Fortifications

In this chapter we will discuss the Roman fortifications of the city center of Belluno, the remains of a population that transformed several countries.

Belluno was probably founded between 220 and 200 BC. by the Romans who drove away the Celtic populations who lived in these lands to the north. The city, at the time, was surrounded by high walls of which, unfortunately, remains only traces in some parts. The famous gateways to the town truly represent the Roman presence: Porta Rugo, where once the road led to the river port of Borgo Piave, Porta Dojona, which takes its name from the nearby tower, Porta Dante, which at the time of the Romans was a small service exit called Ussolo.
