The gate is defended by the Jakobo Torsello (# 2) and Bernabo di Franki (# 3) Towers. The barbican is a horse shoe shaped semi-circular wall attached to the western side of the two towers. It strengthened the gate defense with its drawbridge over a moat. Only the foundation of the barbican wall was remaining except on the northern side, but it is much reconstructed now.
