- In the early 14th century, the city underwent great structural improvements as part of the expansion programme ordered by Duke Ludwig VI of Bavaria. Sendlinger Tor was first documented in 1318 as the 'gateway to Italy' and, along with Neuhausertor and Isartor, formed part of secondary fortifications built in the 14th century. The main tower was demolished in 1810, yet both side towers were restored by Zenetti in 1860. In 1906, the three routes through the gate were substituted with a single one by Bertsch. The oldest cinema in the city, Filmtheater Sendlinger Tor, is located opposite St.Matthäus Kirche (1953-55) on the other side of the square.
