Close-up of the Sassenpoort
Netherlands, Zwolle, May 2010

Of the three city gates Zwolle once had, the Sassenpoort is the only gate which is still intact. It dates back to the beginning of the 15the century and was a status symbol of the town.
I couldn't find additional information in English, only in Dutch: http://www.bertsgeschiedenissite.nl/middeleeuwen/eeuw15/zwolle_stadswallen.htm

Regal and foreboding! I imagine the entire town had a wall around it too?

That is right Linda, but nowadays only a few pieces of the wall have survived the wear and tear of time!
