The whole city of Dubrovnik was enclosed with walls in the 13th century, that were extended up until the 17th century.

Inside the Old Town you’ll find the Placa Square, where you can really take in the architecture in its grandest state. Look up to see the 15th century clock tower and stroll through the winding streets lined with Renaissance buildings.

The best place to see it all though, is at the top of the city walls.

With numerous additions and modifications throughout their history, the walls of Dubrovnik are amongst the greatest fortification systems of the Middle Ages, and one of the biggest Dubrovnik attractions.

The Big fountain of Onofrio is another important part of the city’s medieval fortifications, since it was the original water supply system that carried water from the Dubrovacka river.

To walk on the city walks, take the entrance on the Stradun from the side of Pile gate right in front of the Onofrio’s fountain. Here you can purchase tickets for the walls.
