Turkey, Attalia (Antalya) - Hadrian's gate
A stylish triple-arched gateway erected in 130 CE to mark the emperor Hadrianís visit to the city. Itís still used as one of the principal entrances to the historic KaleiÁi quarter of todayís Antalya. And itís a very visible reminder of how much lower the street level was in Roman times. At the base of the central arch there are quite deep grooves formed by the passage of carts: hence the glass-bottomed footbridge, designed to save the modern pedestrian from a twisted ankle.
