The fortress is the highest point on the wall and offers stellar views across the city and sea. There is a steep, narrow stair case leading up to it from the city wall. Once up there you can catch your breath just long enough for the views to take it away again! STUNNING! By the time you reach the fortress... More

Daenerys Targaryen's the house of the undying outdoor scenes in season 2 is filmed here. Do not miss to visit this place if you are a huge Game of Thrones fan!

The fortress has a beautiful view over the sea and the old city. Worth visiting if you are in town. Entrance fee, but you can get in using the tickets for the city walls of the old town if you already walked that one.

Highest point of the city wall. Great view over the old town. If you start from Pile gate you need to go around whole city wall due to one way direction

Bring comfortable shoes and stretch before you climb the steps up for what is a must see experience. You can start in the back from Ploce Gate instead of from Pile Gate as that is closer way to Minceta Fortress. Bring camera and good shoes! Must see

We spent some time trying to find our way to the fortress, climbed up hundreds of steps to find we could not come in because of an event - hundreds of people suffered the same fate that day, all of us asking why there was not a notice at the bottom of the steps - none of us getting an... More

There is a bit of a climb up a number of steps to this fort but it is worth it as you will be at the highest point of the walls. If you start at Ploce Gate, you encounter this part quite early on (rather than at the end if you start at Pile Gate) and may therefore have a... More

Some of the best photos I took along the Old City walls were taken through the slots in the Minceta Tower.I thought it was well worth the climb.

A lot less people visit this fortress than the city itself, which makes it an ideal place for a great views of the city and surrounding area. Lots of steps to get to the top of the fortress but the views are worth it. It's just a short walk from the city walls to the fortress.
