In 1600 the Porta Orientale (today Porta Venezia) was placed to the north in the walls of the Spanish walls that had been built between 1548 and 1562, by order of Ferrante I Gonzaga, at the time governor of the city for Carlo V. The perimeter of the walls extended for about eleven kilometers and was protected by a mighty wall with towers and lunettes connected by bastions. The tract, which today we know with the name of Bastioni di Porta Venezia, was then called Bastioni di San Dionigi.
