Photographer's Note

The Porta Nigra is Europe biggest town-gate built by the Romans, is a notable attraction in Trier.
Built in the second-century, as part of defense system with 4 gates and a wall. This is the north gate. Added more info on the Wikipedia page about the gate.
From Trier Hauptmarkt, Simeonstrasse leads strait to the Porta Nigra, and a modern boulevard of Nordallee is on the outer side of what was the old-Roman town.
Taken under my umbrella. The colorful mini-train is for the great contrast it contributed.
In the WS a frontal view from closer POV.
