Minceta fortress, you can't miss this if you visit the old city Dubrovnik. It is the top point of the city wall and the view is astonishing. Entrance to the wall tickets include the fortress as well. A narrow path up the steps to the fortress but you should try. Absolutely worth visiting. I could experience all episodes of the... More

This is the highest point of the city walls and if it's a windy day, you certainly feel it. Quite a few stairs to climb to reach the top and the stair case is narrow, but certainly worth it as the views are spectacular! The fortress is part of the walls and of course is included in the entry price.... More

Although the original tower dates back to the 14th century, it was reshaped in the 15th century by a famous Florentine architect. It stands on the city side of the walls. It is massive but bears a certain (military) elegance with its defensive crown on the top tower. When you visit the city walls, you can visit this tower and... More

Minceta Fortress is the large tower at the highest corner of the city walls. You can't visit it separately from the walls. You'll go through it on the way round the walls. It's the House of the Undying from Game of Thrones.

If you have the option, drive to the top! Narrow winding road so be careful, but the views are worth it. Avoids the expensive cable car!

Lots of stairs and walking along the city walls to get here, but well worth it for the views! 100K entry onto city walls to get to it

If you are here is because you are already up in to the ancient city walls, so a few more steps shouldn´t be a problem (even being some steep steps, beware) and you will be delighted with a great view over the old town and Pile gate. Here, as well as the rest of the city walls, is useful to... More

To see the most of the old city without going to the hill, it's the best spot. And, if you're a fan of Game of Thrones, you certainly will recognize the door of the House of Undying.

Well worth a visit very moving tribute. I hadn't realised what these people went through and they were not all trained soldiers.
