This is one of several gates into/out of Kotor old town at the south end. It is a little out of the main old town but the approach through the narrow stone alley is worthwhile.

Saw this as part of a walking tour of the city. Good photo shoots from the location. Only by walking out of these and other gates one can actually appreciate the level of protection the local population needed in those times

You go through a tunnel. There is a spring feeding the water outside the walls. Nice and less traveled.

Visiting the walled old city of Kotor is a wonderful experience no matter which gate you choose. Do remember to hike up to teh church and to teh very top of the castle fortress for spectacular views of the Bay of Kotor.

There was building work being done on the street leading to the South Gate exposing water course running below the level of the street but care had to be taken.

This is a very photogenic spot with a pleasant outlook. I was most impressed with some of the original "mechanics" of the gate that are still intact showing how it operated. We spent quite a while taking photos around here.

one of the gates to kotor but the nicest one due to the green waters in the moat below. If you are coming to Kotor dont worry pass by here many times. a good place to start or finish a walk up the mountain.

The gate leads out of the town to the edge of the river coming down from the mountains. There are lots of people going through the gate so you can either people watch or look at the fish in the crystal clear river waters

One of the exits that seems to be guarded by lots of playful cats! Follow this into another part of old Kotor that can be very easy to miss if you go through the main gate.
