Arco di Augusto

The Memorial will recognize different styles: the ten columns that decorate the facade and sides culminate in Corinthian capitals, while latrabeazione, adorned by metopes and triglyphs, is of the Doric order.

In the middle ages, was named Saint-Voût (French for "Holy face") by a picture of the Savior that was placed there.

The crucifix exposed under the vault is a copy of what in 1449 was placed as a votive offering against the flooding of the Buthier, which flows just East. The original of the crucifix is now housed at the Museo del tesoro della cattedrale di Aosta.
