Otherwise known as the Porta Palazzo in Italian or Porta Palatii in the original Latin, the so-called Palatine Towers are the remains of one of the city gates built by the Romans to allow entry into Turin. As of now, only the central gate remains from the original Roman structure, the rest having been rebuilt in the Medieval Era.

Recently, the city of Turin has revamped the site. A better, more accessible park makes the Palatine Towers a wonderful monument to see after you have browsed the nearby Porta Palazzo market.
