Abstract: Victoria Gate was designed by architect Emmanuel Galizia and built in 1884-5 to replace the old Porta Marina. An arched entrance provided thoroughfare for carriages and heavy traffic, pedestrians used smaller side doors. The gate had a non functional moat in good faced stone. After several decades with increasing traffic the gate facility became inadequate and the moat was filled in. This backfill is now being excavated.
