  • It is a fortress that had the task of protecting the port of the city from the south, and was connected through a chain to the fort of St. Luke (which protected the north side), and prevented the entry into the city by unwanted ships. The chain with which the 2 buildings were connected was so strong and resistant that it was capable of tearing down the keel of the boats and remained in use until the second half of the FIFTEENTH century, when an artificial islet called Kase was built. Internally, the structure during the period in which Dubrovinik was a republic presented a dust shop, while the numerous cannons on the top of the fort were brought by the Austrians when the city was annexed to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Beautiful. Place not to be missed if he goes to Dubrovinik. I will definitely return. TO VISIT!!!

  • It's a hike around the walls from Pile Gate, but well worth the effort. For those of a certain age, you can stop for a coffee or ice cream on the way.  more »
