The Walls of Lucca
A splendid example of architecture for defensive purposes, the Walls of Lucca are unique in the world. They represent the last Walls built over the centuries and have been made during the Renaissance to defend the city by the attackers. They consist of barracks, ramparts, bastions and embrasures. The function of the latter was twofold: the defense of the curtain walls and doors and the cover of the cavalry town. The ring of the Walls is decorated with a tree-lined street, about 4 km long, interrupted in its course by 11 bastions destiny to protect the Walls and entrance doors to the city. From the promenade above the Walls, turning inside, you can see the ancient buildings and numerous churches of Lucca. Outside the Walls there are many green fields and in the distance you can see the peaks of the Apuan Alps and the Monti Pisani.
The Porta San Pietro, was opened in 1566 while the two side passages were opened about three hundred years later. Porta San Pietro opens with three doors surmounted at the center of a shield with the arms of St. Peter with the word 'LIBERTAS' and on the sides by two lions placed in niches in the ancient openings through which flowed the chains that operated the old drawbridge.
