The gate linked the town with the outside world. It was largely rebuilt in the mid-19th century to a design by Luigi Antonio Baruffaldi. Above the gate rises the belfry of the nearby parish church (Santa Maria).

If you are traveling with kids it may be difficult to do but if you get out early with your significant other you can go here and enjoy an early breakfast and espresso while walking along the beautiful castle walls. Really lovely.

There is a local market outside the gates during the morning. Here you can get fresh berries and fruits or eggs and veggies straight from the farmers.

Whilst in Riva I lingered here, admiring the architecture. The buildings have a wonderful colour palette of subtle, earthy tones. I drank too many italian coffees and took hundreds of photographs. It's just a place to soak up the atmosphere of the region. I absolutely...More
