Overview

An excavation on the site of the 'Gornji ugao' tower, in the north-west corner of the walled city of Dubrovnik, in Croatia, uncovered evidence for a foundry established in the second half of the 15th century and largely producing armaments. It is a rare example of this type of industrial site, and its position within the city walls makes it unique. Excavation has provided information on the technical subdivision and spatial logic of the site. Activity at the foundry ceased after the Great Earthquake in 1667, which devastated the entire city, although part of the site continued in use as a foundry, on a smaller and more improvised scale.

Previous reviews are right - it's very interesting, quiet and away from it all. Well worth seeking out. Divo is an excellent knowledge guide, who has created the tour. The new entrance from 13 July 17 is up the stairs at the base of the...More

Wonderful museum for those that enjoy seeing the results of Archaeological work. A little hard to find, and seemingly not visited much--we were the only ones there at the time.

An absolute must if you’re in Dubrovnik. Doesn’t take too long (we took around an hour), is super cheap (30 Kuna/around £5-£6 I think) and is really really interesting. Very well put together museum. Would definitely recommend!

Once you have walked the walls and toured the city, you should definitely plan on visiting the Gornji Ugao Tower. It was fascinating and so well presented. We used the tablet version of the tour which was great - very informative but not overly verbose....More
