Heidelberg #5, (7 day project) - Elizabeth's Gate

 
The Elizabeth's Gate, erected by Friedrich in 1615 in the style of a Roman triumphal arch for his "well-beloved wife Elizabeth" formed the southern access to the Gun Park which he had changed into a pleasure garden. Tradition says the gate was built in a single night as a suprise for the Electress. The charming little gate was severely weatherwarn and was partly restored in 1949. The unique pillars are noteworthy with their leafwork and artistic flowered capitols. On either side adjoined by the southern wall of Gun Park on the west side of which stood the large aviary, also built by Friedrich.
