N.A. A road passes through a great ruined archway built by the Romans to last for ages, whose somber red brick-work contrasts strongly with the gray stone mediaeval tower perched on its top. Peasant women, scarlet-robed and white-coifed, on donkeys, or with bundles gracefully poised on the head, symbolize the present time in this union of three different ages of the world. [P. 26.]
