The Arch is located at the entrance to the old city and you can imagine why it was called Triumphal as the road leads to the Temple of Augustus at the other end of the town. Near the Arch is the statue of the Irish writer James Joyce who appears to be sitting at an outdoor cafe. Evidently he taught... More

First of many times we saw the arch, when getting off local bus. Pick your moment and vary arrival time when taking a photo as there is lighting issues from the sun and crowd issues from the tours.

We were determined to find the Arch and after wandering through most of Pula (or so it seemed) we walked through some shops and there it was at the end of the street! It's fascinating to see, especially with the contrast of the modern stores and businesses. Definitely worth stopping by and taking a look. Even the children were fascinated... More

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.
