I say that because not many people would pay to see it on its own, a little out the way, maybe think its too much of a climb and well its just a fort. However, most people will do the city walls walk so keep hold of that ticket as it gets you entrtance to the fort.

Ok so your contemplating now going, the walk isnt that bad, its a nice bit of exercise taking the steps up the hill to the fort however once there you will have a fantastic view of the city only paralleled by the cable car ride (and theres no cable obstructions and generally far less people too vying for a view/photo). The view aside, another potential reason for certain people who may consider this is that it was also used as the red keep in Game of Thrones, so theres some interest for those who like to see actual filming locations.

pros: freebie entrance (for those paying for city walls who may not realise its included)
great views, film location (for those interested)

cons: none really - although the hill steps may be a bit too much for some

This fort by itself is not the best but the views of the walls of Dubrovnik are the best here. The old Fort will be a small hike from the city too which will show you a small hidden place for swimming without too many people.

The ticket for the walls will allow you entrance here.

This is a must-see in my opinion - the views of the walls from above are breathtaking! The walk to the top is not hard - its steep, but over soon. The day we went was drizzling, but I wanted the view on a sunny day so bad that I went back the next day and when it was nicer and ran up again to take some more. So glad I did, the photos are my favorite from the trip. My husband just sat at a cafe outside the area and waited 15 minutes for me.

After you walk the wall, take the time to walk over to the fort. There are more steps to walk, but the view of the wall is worth it. You will see the crowds walking the wall and be glad you went early to avoid them. Did not seem that very many people visit the fort after the wall but it is included in your ticket price.

We had paid to walk the city walls and entrance to Lovrijenac was included in the price. It is more steps to climb so we got an icecream to eat on the way. It was very quiet with only a handful of people at the Fort. Great views away from all the hussle and bustle.
