Although many pass through this gate when visiting the old city, it is worth noting architectural details from Kotor's history. Sea Gate was rebuilt in 1555 in Renaissance style when Kotor was ruled by Venice (1420-1797). A large winged lion of San Macro, the symbol...More

The Sea Gate is the main entrance to the town and the oldest. While historical, it is not particularly attractive. Until the 19th century one could only pass through the gate from the sea.

Sea gate is the main entrance visitors used to access old town. There’s nothing really remarkable about the entrance itself, you’ll notice a relief in the tunnel to the right as you enter. The gate is a bit of a tourist trap, followed by north...More

Unlike the melting pot of most tourist places this isn't over run nor are there street hawkers which makes this a relaxed entrance. It's not the original, which was about 50 yards away but still it remains of interest.

Definitely experience entering the Old City through this gate, or exiting through it. The view of the main piazza is amazing, as is the view of the marina.

I don't know where the idea of being charged 1 Euro to enter the city comes from, which other reviewers have mentioned, for I stayed near the Old Town for a week and walked through this gate multiple times and was never charged a cent....More

This is a great entrance to the city, with interesting architectural features both inside and above the gate. The depth of the walls is impressive and you get a good sense of this walking through the gate. It is the main entrance and straight away...More
