“Fascinating complete with drawbridge ”
Review of Pile Gate

Pile Gate
Ranked #23 of 141 things to do in Dubrovnik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

This 7th century part of the walled city is fascinating. The drawbridge alone is unique but make sure you look behind you as you enter the city and see the working mechanism of balls and chains that raised and lowered the bridge. Note just how thick the wall is and the amazing stone work in creating the arch and still have it standing today.

This is the main entrance to the city and right away it introduces you to the unique atmosphere of the city. Very nice place a lot of people going in or out or meeting. After the gate you have one of the spot used in game of thrones movie. Must see...

You can't travel to Dubrovnik and not go through the Pild gates. It is an iconic view of Dubrovnik and a central meeting point. Not to mention if u are an animal lover a great way to get some photos of kitties welcoming you to the city behind the wall.
