This is the iconic structure for town where everyone takes a photo. Pretty square with cafes and restaurants around. Lovely.

The gates are not that much, but they are the historical entrance to the city. A lovely city with 3 cruise ships in port. Seems like another paradise lost.

Picturesque entry to the city from the harbor. Many small restaurants and shops nearby. Beautiful hand layed cobblestone.

Not far off the sea front are the old city gates of Ponta Del Garda, with a church in the background, pleasant to stroll to and take photos

It's smack dab in the center of Porta Delgado, you can't miss it. The other church in town is nicer. Sunday morning call to church bells are really neat.
