Easy to find and not miss. Another gateway in to Pula. Once again impressed by these robust structures still standing and in very good condition. Remember to photograph it !

impressive gateway to the old town Pula is a fascinating place to visit for the day and see so many Roman historic architecture. Well worth a visit and not so crowded in September.
