- City walls
The remains of city walls have been preserved from the times of Roman Empire, Middle Ages, while most of it dates from 16th century. Next to the ramparts there is a medieval Captain’s Tower, while the most picturesque part lies on south next to the harbor in Foša. There is the Land Gate from 1543 and the Sea Gate from 1573 that is slightly closer to the port and the Church of St. Grisogono. Throughout the history, the walls were broken in order to form gates, then built again and destroyed completely. Today, there are eight such gates and they represent a link between the historic center and other parts of the city. The city walls line is broken by Ponton, central bastion and the fortress Forte, which stand out from the rest of the whole.
