The winged lion above the gate reveals the Influence of Venice on this beautiful Renaissance city. The city gate also conveys the vibe and charm of an old European city.

These city gates are impressive connection of city walls, a great piece of Venetian architecture. Same architect did a fortress St Nicholas in Šibenik and one similar gates in Greece. At the time, these gates were considered as “monumental architecture” in this part of Europe....More

Loved walking about the old city, viewing the ruins, the sea organ and the greeting to the sun with a stop for coffee at an outdoor cafe. A very comfortable walking city.

Like most of towns on Dalmation coast this city gate is part of the wall surrounding the city for protection. Not terribly impressive wall on other side but this Venetian influenced arch is very nice. The decorations are well recognized and well preserved.

A small interesting gate leading from the port area into the old city. Carved with a lion. It leads on towards the main areas of interest.
