- Silver Gate
The Silver Gate was located on the east side of Diocletian’s palace. It was modestly decorated compared to the Golden Gate. In the Middle Ages it was walled up, and in 1952 it was re-opened and renewed. Next to the door there was the Church of St. Apollinaris, which was later demolished. The Baroque church Dušica, which was destroyed during the Allied bombing in 1944, was built on the inside of the gate. The original ancient pavement, which was once part of Via Decumanus, was preserved in the floor of the gate. The Split city market is entered through this gate. In addition to the Silver Gate, which were also known as Porta Orientalis, there are remains of two octagonal towers that defended the entrance. During his stay in Split in 2000, Pope John Paul II visited the gate on his way to the Cathedral of St. Duje.
