Lovrijenac Overview
Lovrijenac is a stunning fortification, perched on a 37 meters tall rock outcrop, overlooking the vast sea. Lying on the western part of Dubrovnik, the magnificent Lovrijenac served as a defence fortress against sea and land invasions. This fortress was guarded by a commander and a total of 25 man garrison, when it was in operation.

Believed to have been constructed between 1018 or 1038, the fortress has gone through multiple renovations, a majority of which were made between the 15th and 16th century. The Lovrijenac Fortress features 3 terraces and a huge quadrilateral court. The walls of the fortress that face the sea are 40 feet thick, while the walls that face the city are 2 feet thick.
