The genovesa door

The Genoese Porto Vecchio is one of the last remaining artefacts of the Genoese empire in the city. Indeed, the Genoese did not stay for long in this area, repelled by the living conditions. Being the city built on water, mosquito-borne epidemics often helped repel the enemy. It is easy to find when you stroll along the historic streets of the city. You should stop to see both sides of the door, which are very different from one another. The view seen through the door is also captivating ... you can see the salt which gave Porto Vecchio its nickname of "Salt City" when the marshes were transformed into 35 acres of salt, which freed the city of epidemics of the time.

Genoese porto-vecchio door, the remai...

Genoese Porto-Vecchio door, the remains of the citadel with bastions, is one of the few traces of the presence of the Genoese empire in the city. In fact, the Genoese did not stay long each time they were repulsed by the living conditions of the territory. The city is built on swamp, epidemics due to mosquitoes have often contributed to repel the enemy. Single input gate of the city, it is still well preserved. You fall over quite easily by walking through the historic streets of the city, and then do not hesitate to observe both sides of the door, which are very different from one side to the other. I was also struck by the view that emerges through the door. Indeed, salt, worth the nickname in Porto-Vecchio the "city of salt" can be seen. All these marshes have indeed been transformed into 35 acres of saline, and this is what rid the city of its epidemic at the time.

La porte Génoise de Porto-Vecchio, un des vestiges de la citadelle avec les bastions, est unes des rares traces de la présence de l’empire Génois dans la ville. En effet, les Génois ne sont pas restés bien longtemps à chaque fois, puisqu’ils furent repoussés par les conditions de vie du territoire. La ville étant construite sur des marais, les épidémies dues aux moustiques ont souvent contribué à repousser l’ennemi. Seule porte d’entrée de la ville, elle est aujourd’hui encore bien conservée. On tombe dessus assez facilement en se baladant à travers les ruelles historiques de la ville, et n’hésitez pas alors à observer les deux facettes de la porte, qui sont très différentes d’un côté et de l’autre. J’ai également été frappée par la vue qui se dégage en passant la porte. En effet, on aperçoit les salines, qui valent son surnom à Porto-Vecchio la « cité de sel ». Tous ces marais ont en effet été transformés en 35 hectares de saline, et c’est ce qui a débarrassé la ville de ses épidémies à l’époque.
