The city walls
Vrbnik is an old-fashioned town built in a conical shape where the houses were built within the city walls for security reasons. The existence of historical walls is evidenced by the partially preserved remains and a damaged tower. The remains can be seen on the left side of the street Pod Kaštel and its right-hand side offers a beautiful view of the crystal sea and the nearby mainland. As the entire city was surrounded with walls, it could be entered though two city gates – the great gate and the small gate or Dverca. The city was well fortified and thus various attacks and robberies from the southeast and east of the island were stopped. In the 19th century the city began to expand beyond its walls.
