Old Town Walls Overview
The Old Town Walls are not only one of the iconic attractions of Dubrovnik, but are also the reason why the city is referred to as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. Dubrovnik is entirely encompassed by the strong 6363 feet long and 83 feet high defensive walls. These walls were built in the ancient times with the aim of safeguarding the Dubrovnik Republic against foreign invasions.

A total of two corner towers, two round towers, five bastions, twelve quadrilateral forts have been developed to protect the Old Town Walls. On the northern side there is the Tower Minčeta, on the eastern side there is the Revelin Fortress, on the western side there is the Bokar Fortress, and on the southwestern side there is the Fortress of Saint John.
