Roman Arch of Dona Isabel

​Corresponding to one of the gates of the Roman city of Ebora, this military, civil and public structure was built between the late second century and the beginning of the third century A.D.

Built in granite stonework and already without the portholes, only the wide span, on the city´s wall, has reached our days.

With the height of 4,5 m and 4 m width, it´s a rounded arch, comprising 29 wedge arranged stones, which in turn are supported by imposts and robust stone pillars of squared and cushioned stonework.
