This stretch of ancient walls were part of the Porta della Decima, also known as Porta Siracusa: one of the ancient gates of Catania.
It was so named because of the proximity of the storehouses of the tithes; all the goods of the hinterland enter the city through this gate, after the tenth part was paid to the archiepiscopal curia of Catania.
It was in Arabic style, with Byzantine ornaments.
It was demolished after 1860 for the paving of San Giuseppe Place, today Carmelo Maravigna Place.
