The Porta Romana, once known as the Porta San Pier Gattolino, was the southernmost gate in the 13th-century walls of the Oltrarno section of Florence. The 13th century walls and gates of the city were erected with the designs of various builders; among the main contributors were Arnolfo di Cambio, with contributions by Orcagna, Giotto and others. A plaque on the external wall claims the gate was erected in 1327.
