A familiar sight when approaching Floriana, the gate was built in 1721 during the reign of Spanish Grand Master Ramos Perellos to the designs of the French architect Charles Mondion. The cost was 6000 scudi. The original gate had one archway; this was duplicated in 1868 during the time of Sir Patrick Grant, Governor of Malta. The architect was Col. E. W. Dunford, Royal Engineers.
