A very imposing gate through which visitors enter the city. Display map inside shows the destruction in the 1990s war.

Impressive, bulging norther entry to the old city. Sadly is always busy with people running to and from the bus stop and surrounding restaurants. But still a very cool piece of the old defenses.

This entrance into the Old City is majestic and sets the scene for everything you are going to see inside the walls. Great!

The Pile Gate is the gateway to Dubrovnik Old Town. It marks the entrance with a some style as you enter a different Dubrovnik from the modern one right outside. Usually, this is where your transportation will drop you to walk the old town or the walls.
