The Porta San Giorgio opens up in front of the church of the same name in Braida. It sits within a part of the walls which substituted the Venetian boundary enhancing it with stronger bastions. It was built in 1525. The internal façade is Austrian in style with three arches, while the outside is covered in marble. The San Giorgio Bastion runs along the right hand side on via Nievo. It is an extension of a previous Venetian defense system. From the San Giorgio Breach slightly further ahead, one can see an open space which was once used by the artillery. Even further along are the rondelle, or guard posts which run along the wall's Venetian and medieval sections.
