Ponta Gate to Old Port in Dubrovnik, Croatia

During Medieval and Renaissance times, Dubrovnik only had four gates leading into its fortified city walls. Perhaps the least elaborate is the Ponta Gate which means “pier” in Croatian. This portal to the Old Port was designed by Juraj Dalmatinac and built during the 15th century by Paskoje Miličević. If you look to the right as you exit old town you will see the circular St. John Fort.
