Old town gates
The front doors are a part of the castle Soardo-Bembo in Bale, and they lead to the old part of town. The city gates are of symbolic and functional importance for the city. They are especially equipped in such a way that in time of peace, they allow communication, but during the war, they are a strong defensive shield. All the gates built at that time (14th century), were set so that the entrances were very narrow, and the entrance roads had a sharp turn and suddenly changed direction. Above the door there is a coat of arms of Bembo family – the Venetian lion from 1445., and above the lion, there is a sundial.
