Description

The Alameda was erected in 1787 and was planted with two rows of poplars that gave it its name, which were replaced in 1830 by bananas from Lebanon and tamarinds. The gate was a portal with three arches with the royal coat of arms, two inscriptions on marble plaques and two elegant Genoese statues of the Summer and the Spring.
The gate was demolished in 2016 and reconstructed in 2008.
