Porta San Salvatore is one of the main ancient gates of the city, a vestige of a past time, of wars, sieges, dominations.
They tell us about the Norman period, around the year 1000, when Count Roger conquered Sicily dominated by the Arabs. They tell us about the Spanish period with Frederick III of Aragon who in 1300 ordered the great city walls including the villages. They are part of the fortifications commissioned in 1500 by Viceroy De Vega.
One of these bastions of war, the one right next to Porta San Salvatore, is today the seat of the Widespread Museum of the 5 Senses. This is where we defended ourselves with weapons by pushing back the enemies, today we greet everyone with a smile and give everyone a warm welcome saying:” bless you” Assabenedica!
