The Porta Nigra (from the Latin Black Door) is a monumental gate built during the Roman Empire that was part of the fortifications of the city of Trier. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986.
It is the emblematic monument of the city of Trier, one of the oldest in Germany. The inhabitants call it in general simply by the abbreviation Porta.
This monumental gate was built around 180 as the northern entrance of the city of Augusta Treverorum to the country of Trévires, that is Trier. Its name comes from the dark color of the stone, due to the patina of the years: it is certified that it goes back to the Middle Ages.
The Byzantine monk Simeon was installed in the monument as a Cenobite around 1028. After his death in 1035, he was canonized and a sanctuary was built in his honor with what the Porta Nigra became a double church; for that two overlapping sanctuaries were adapted whose apse can still be seen today.
In 1802, Napoleon Bonaparte had the church and the sanctuary destroyed. In 1804, while passing through Trier, he decided to eliminate the other additions, which allowed to restore the appearance of the Roman construction.
The Porta Nigra appears on German postage stamps on successive occasions: the first time in 1940, then in 1947 and later, in 1984 (for the second millennium of the city).
In 1986, the Porta Nigra, as well as other Roman monuments that are preserved in Trier and in the region, is inscribed on the list of World Heritage Sites by Unesco, within the set called Roman Monuments of Trier (Porta Nigra, amphitheater, Constantine Basilica, Barbarathermen, Roman Bridge of Trier, Imperial Baths and Column of Igel), Trier Cathedral and Church of Our Lady of Trier.
In 2017, it will appear representing Rhineland Palatinate in the 2-euro commemorative coin, thus succeeding that of the previous year representing the Zwinger Palace in Dresden.

Imperial Baths of Trier
The Imperial Baths of Trier or Kaiserthermen in German are located near the Rheinisches Landes-Museum in Trier, Germany. Built at the beginning of the fourth century, during the reign of Constantine I the Great, they were the third largest thermal complex in the Roman world. The ruins of the walls and foundations still show the original design. The walls of the caldarium (room with hot water pool) are the best preserved. Then come the tepidarium, the hot springs.
The spacious frigidarium was used for cold baths and the arena, an external exercise area, was also wide. The other fundamental part of the hot springs was the hypocaustum heating system, in which the air was heated by ovens and conducted below the pavement.
In 1986, the imperial baths, as well as other Roman monuments that are preserved in Trier and in the region, are inscribed on the list of World Heritage Sites by Unesco, within the set called Roman Monuments of Trier (Porta Nigra, amphitheater, Constantine basilica, Barbarathermen, Roman bridge, imperial baths and column of Igel), Trier cathedral and church of Our Lady of Trier.

Augusta Treverorum (Latin meaning city of Augustus in the country of the trier) was a city in the Lower Germania province of the Roman Empire on the Moselle shore. It is the antecedent of the current city of Trier and one of the three cities that bear the name of the emperor (the other two are Augusta Vindelicorum, today Augsburg in Bavaria, Germany, and Augusta Raurica near Basel in Switzerland).
The first settlements date from prehistoric times. In the Roman potters neighborhood on the Moselle bank, discoveries of the culture of pottery were detected. The area had probably already been deforested and a ford was located at the place where the Romans built the first wooden bridge over the Moselle in 17 a. C. (dendrochronological dating). It is assumed that at that time the Roman city was founded. The fragments of an inscription on a monument for the grandchildren of Augustus, Lucio and Cayo, died in 2 and 4 d. C. respectively, show that at the end of Augustus' reign the settlement had urban structures. The analysis of Roman early finds in the urban area confirms this evaluation. This coincides with the abandonment of the settlement on the mountain, so that there may have been a transfer of tribal administrative center of the trier.
Tacitus mentioned for the first time a stone bridge over the Moselle in his report on the rebellion of the Batavians in 69 AD. C. and also that the city was a Roman colony. Since there is no other evidence, it is definitely not clear if Tacitus uses this term in a legal or only urban sense, which seems to be more likely, and this Check the importance of the city.
The city grew rapidly. Numerous buildings were built such as the hot springs of the cattle market around 80 d. C. or the amphitheater that accommodated a large number of spectators around 100 d. C. In the fourth century Augusta Treverorum had about 80,000 inhabitants and was the largest city north of the Alps.
