Description

(EN) | The first gate of the Vauban fortress of Alba Iulia is located at the eastern extremity of the citadel. It was built as a triumphal monument and has three openings. On the frontispice, framing the emblem of the House of Austria are the statues of Mars and Venus, also flanked by two bombard canons in firing position. The facades are decorated with basoreliefs depicting Aeneas saving his father, Anchise, from the ruins of Troy and on the right the fight of Hercules with Anteus; on the interior facade there are scenes like Perseus holding the head of the Medusa and Hercules fighting the lion of Nemeea.

(RO) | Situată la extremitatea estică a ansamblului, poarta este clădită în forma unui arc de triumf prevăzut cu trei deschideri. Deasupra arhitravei, încadrând stema Casei de Austria, se află statuile lui Venus şi Marte flancate, la rândul lor, de reprezentările a două bombarde în poziţia de tragere. Faţadele sunt decorate cu reliefuri inspirate de mitologia antică: Eneea salvându-şi tatăl, pe Anchise, din flăcările Troiei, şi lupta lui Hercule cu Anteu la exterior, Perseu cu capul Meduzei şi Hercule în luptă cu leul din Nemeea, la interior.
