Porta Nigra, Germany: the best preserved gate from the ancient world Friday, May 13th How about exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site with Juliane in Trier, Germany? When the Romans laid the foundation stone for the Porta Nigra in AD 170, they would never have imagined how successful it would be. After all, the city gate was just one of four in Trier at the time. Today, some 1850 years later, the ‘Black Gate’ is the best preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps, and the number one attraction when it comes to Roman structures in modern-day Germany. So come see it!
