Porta Nigra | Trier, Germany

From Wikipedia,
The Porta Nigra (black gate) in Trier, Germany, is a large Roman gatehouse with two four-storied towers, projecting as near semi-circles on the outer side. The structure is largely of grey sandstone, and was built between 180 and 200. In the Middle Ages, the building was used as a church, one of the towers being adapted to contain an apse.

I give it a 9.5 because it's 1800 years old and it still looks nice!

7.5 I've seen it in person and I just don't like the lack of symmetry. The uneven towers ruin the look for me. Great building besides that.

They should renovate it and use it for some cultural stuff.
