The Minceta Fortress is the highest point of the ancient city walls, and it's funny that it is listed separately on Tripadvisor. All of that being said, when visiting the ancient city walls, spot out the highest point (which is a tower), and that is Minceta Fortress. The city walls circle the city, so reach the tower, climb up the... More

Photo opportunities from everywhere around the city walls. From Minceta Fortress in the north east corner it looks down and over residential areas as well as looking out to the Aegean Sea to the west, north and south.

Yep, that is the tower. Besides as the filming location, you can also go up to the fortress and look at the old town. A very nice view of the old town.

This Fortress is on the last corner, just before you finish the City Walls walk. If you've timed it right and it's late afternoon, the light for taking pictures should be ideal, the views are great too! The stairway to the top is a little claustrophobic and only one person wide, so take care.

Yes, there are a few steps, but even from the walls without climbing you get a great view over the red roof tops of the city. The Fortress is a part of the wall walk and you have to pay to make the walk.

This is the best place to take panoramic pictures of the old city. The view from here is enchanting... not to miss attraction.

You can see the whole city from here, as the title said. Not the easiest place to climb up as its a free for all on the steps up. When you finally do it makes it all worth while, spend a coupe of minutes on each corner and look at the city below.

The castle and surrounds provide the tourist or history academic with fantastic opportunities to explore ancient and modern history from the period of the Crusades through to the Balkans' war. Views over Dubrovnik are fantastic and the Fort gives one the chance to look across to local islands and the harbour. Staying within the old city walls makes for a... More

it looks like a crown on top of the city and the view is perfect. Can get a bit crowded but definitely worth it.
