The Galliera city-gate was built in 1661 on the remains of its 12th-century predecessor. It was designed in a typically Baroque style by Bartolomeo Provaglia. In the gardens opposite there is a statue of Ugo Bassi which was cast by Carlo Parmeggiani in 1888. Nearby, you can see the remains of the old Rocca di Galliera. This was the old castle once owned by the Pontiff's legation.
