Welcome to Palermo, Sicily!
Porta Felice is one of the gates of Palermo, it represents the entrance from the sea side to the Cassaro, one of the main axes of the city of Palermo.
It takes its name from Donna Felice Orsini, wife of the Spanish viceroy Marcantonio Colonna, who, in 1582, decided to give a monumental entrance to the Cassaro (the current via Vittorio Emanuele).
With the death of the viceroy, the construction of the gate, consisting of two imposing pylons, designed by the architect Mariano Smiriglio, stopped. later the works resumed and continued until 1637.
The elapsed time allowed the differentiation of the facades of the pylons: so we have the internal facade with characteristics more tending to Renaissance styles, while the second made with gray marble cladding and sculptures with typically Baroque characters and connotations.
Following the bombings of the Second World War, the right pillar was almost completely destroyed, but careful restoration has restored the door to its former glory, although it has lost some of the original decorative elements.
