In a very good state of repair at the entrance to a major square on the edge of the old town and close to the statue of James Joyce. Interesting and worth photographing.

This arch (also known as the Golden Gate) is located at the south east entrance to the town centre and dates from about 30 BC. Look at the carvings of grapes on it and it amazing to think these are nearly 2000 years old. Just past the arch on the left is a building in which the famous Irish writer... More

This well-preserved ancient structure provides a lovely contrast with the 'modern' buildings in close proximity. It's amazing to think that something that is so old is still in such good condition. The Triumphal Arch of Sergius certainly forms an interesting and impressive 'entrance' to the pedestrian-friendly shopping zone. A great photo opportunity.

One of the "compulsory" Roman historical buildings that you can find in Pula. You won't miss it, but nothing special.

A triumphal entrance to the main shopping area - probably the same route when it was erected around 30 BC !!!! The arch of Sergius (Sergi) was erected by a wealthy widow to commemorate the role played by her husband and brothers at the Battle of Actium, where a fleet commanded by Octavian (later Emperor Augustus) was victorious over Mark...

We had a short visit and it was great. It is a nice place to look at it, and it is an interesting history attraction, but this is all.

We were walking from the arena, along the street where there is a section of the old city wall and right in the middle of a modern pedestrian shopping area, this 2000 year old arch welcomes those to the main shopping street. Fascinating when you think about the arch standing for so long while other buildings have come and gone,... More
