Dubrovnik's Old City Walls and Towers
During the history these walls proved to be an impenetrable barrier to pirates all potential conquerors and are considered to be amongst the great fortification systems of the Middle Ages.
Dubrovnik City Walls had numerous additions and modifications throughout their history.
They surround the whole Old City of Dubrovnik. They are up to 12 m thick and 25 m high, all interconnected, so it is possible to walk on the top of the walls around the whole city with views over the city roofs.
There are two access to the walls - one from the Stradun close to the Pile Gate and access at Svetog Dominika and Kneza Damjana. They are opened daily, all year around.
Dubrovnik Towers include Minceta Tower, where the walls are 6m thick, and Revelin Tower - 16th-century fortress, now used for music and dance venues, Bokar Tower - the Renaissance fortress located above the city port, Lovrijenac Tower, a fortress on the outskirts of city walls.
