St Andrews, West Port

St Andrews, West Port
The West Port of St Andrews was built in 1587 as a monumental entrance to the city’s South Street. It was less a defensive structure than it was a symbol of civic pride. Its design is based on that of the Netherbow in Edinburgh – which, in turn, was modelled on Paris’s Porte Saint-Honore. The gate was extensively refurbished in 1843. Quoted from the Historic Environment website

I love cities where you can find remnants of the past, like these monumental entrance gates or old city walls.
