Gothic Gate




Did you know?

The Gothic gate, with a rotunda-shaped gatehouse and two embrasures, was part of a stone wall that was itself most probably part of a fortified castle. Its main feature is the pointed arch, dating back to the middle of the 19th century, which is typical of the era when the gate was built. According to available historical sources, the gates in the park bore the following two inscriptions: a Latin one reading MORIBVS ANTIQVIS RES STAT ROMANA VIRISQUE (The power of Rome lies in the virtues of past heroes), and a French one saying IL NE VAUT PAS LE PEINDE DE VIVRE, SI L'ON N'A PAS BON AMI (It is not worth living when a man does not have a good friend). Unfortunately, neither of these inscriptions has been preserved, and their place and credibility cannot be verified.
