- Fortress Lovrijenac
If you like finding valuable monuments during your walk in the woods, be sure to visit Lovrijenac Fortress, which can be reached after a walk through the unspoiled, beautiful nature. This fortress was built outside the City Walls upon a 37 meter high sheer rock overlooking the sea, which offers a breathtaking view. This detached fortress was of prime importance for the defence of the western part of Dubrovnik in the 16th century. Over the entrance to Lovrijenac Fortress an ancient inscription in Latin reads as follows: “Freedom is not sold for all the gold in the world”. Inside the fortress is the Chapel of St. Lawrence, and in the courtyard you can see the terraces which are turned into stages for plays during the Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
