You can see the whole city from here, as the title said. Not the easiest place to climb up as its a free for all on the steps up. When you finally do it makes it all worth while, spend a coupe of minutes on each corner and look at the city below.

The castle and surrounds provide the tourist or history academic with fantastic opportunities to explore ancient and modern history from the period of the Crusades through to the Balkans' war. Views over Dubrovnik are fantastic and the Fort gives one the chance to look across to local islands and the harbour. Staying within the old city walls makes for a... More

it looks like a crown on top of the city and the view is perfect. Can get a bit crowded but definitely worth it.

While the tower itself is very impressive, we mostly enjoyed the views over the old town from here. It was also nice to imagine the scenes from GoT filmed here.

The Minceta Fortress forms part of the old town walls and is probably the single highlight although you only need to spend a few minutes here. It's a photogenic spot and you can get plenty of good photos across the town from here because it's the highest point of the tour around the walls. Depending where you access the walls... More

This is part of the cities walls walk - so if you're doing that don't skip it. Good for a photo, but don't spend all day there.

Our family of 5 visited Dubrovnik's city walls in July 2016. The Minceta Fortress is part of the city walls so you can't really miss it if you make your way around. The climb wasn't difficult at all even though it came at the end of the city walls.

A landmark in the history of the region, One cannot help but be moved. Strongly recommend walking up the whole trail to the top. While tiring, it is panoramic view after panoramic view and puts both your geography and life in perspective. Cable Car is optional, but can be pricey. But this is ideal if coming back down.
