This is a way-point on the city walls, and a lot of Game of Thrones was filmed here so it's worth seeing if you're a fan. Even if not, the city walls are a must-visit as you get a unique perspective on the town

Being the highest point some more great views. Take time to go to the very top up the small staircase for the best panorama.

Well worth the climb just for the views on a hot September day. Combined with walking the walls this is a must do for any Game of Thrones fan.

Minceta Fortress is the most impressive of all the fortifications along Dubrovnik's city walls. It is in the north east corner and ¾ of the way around if you start the walk at Pile Gate. The wall walk can be challenging on hot days and Minceta Fortress has some rooms that provide welcome shade. It was built in 1319 on... More

This is the highest point of the walls around the city. The views from here are fantastic. It is a bit of a climb but well worthwhile.

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
