One of many interesting sites

Worth a look. No admission fee as this gate is directly along the street. You can check it out as you are exploring Pula.

It was pleasing to see that these gates were still in good condition and are free to see but for us the more interesting part was discovering that they form one of the entrances to a series of underground tunnels that run under the castle and were used as air raid shelters during the war. The tunnels themselves are not... More

The very grand twin gates (Porta Gemina) are double-arched. This is one of the remaining original ten gates. The gates were fortifications. Evidence of original (pre-2nd century) gates can be found here (we did not see them, unfortunately).

This gate is very prominent and is very well preserved. The only problem is that a main road is right in front of it. When we first visited a delivery van was parked in front which made photos impossible. Luckily most things in Pula are really close so we passed it again and it was van free so I was... More

These double gates are not hard to locate. We had a nice stroll along in the sun to find them. A map showing all the places of interest is available in the Tourist Information Centre in the Forum square. If you go through them there is an underground museum to do with WWII.

People walk by and act as if they are not amazed by the sight of these Roman ruins. These were the entrance to the city and were built in the 2nd-3rd centuries. They are well worth seeing.

Quietly majestic these double gates are beautifully preserved. Behind them now is the Zerostrasse built before and during WWI to shelter the city's population and store ammunition. Behind the gates and just before these underground caves are arranged carved stones for which there are no explanations. The gates are parallel to the street but easily seen and best walked through.

The double or twin gate is a unique sight within Pula as all the other ancient gates are single arch. You can easily see this sight in a few minutes on your walk around the old city walls. One of the entrances to the labyrinth of tunnels under old Pula is just behind the double gate.

Even after such a long time the Twin Gate looks great. Near a small park and a nice place to take a picture.

Honestly, my husband and I are disappointed at our decision to make a detour to Pula. The attractions are not well kept and the city is not really prepared to receivr tourists: lots of restaurants closed in April at 20:00, people were not prepared to give information and the monuments beg to be better kept.
