The gate of Santa Margherita, located in the south-west of the village, formed the walls of Pettorano along with five other gates which were erected in the late Middle Ages.
The patron saint of the village gives her name to this gate, and in fact this is the way to get to the sanctuary of the same name which is outside the walls. This access leads to the outer road and to the other rural church of San Sebastiano and San Lorenzo. The loggers on their way to the mountains to make the branches, passed through this gate - hence its secondary name.
The jambs outside are engraved with letters and traces of a date with a central cross.
