Today, I introduce a walking on the rampart of Dubrovnik.

Unfortunately I didn’t go all the way around it, but even part of it was worth seeing.

We walked the promenade of rampart of the near side from the left side to the right side.

I wanted to walk the rampart of the seaside, but couldn’t go on the grounds of our tour.

We walked it from 10:00 to 10:20.

Upper photo: Minčeta Tower from the promenade of the rampart.

It was built in the 14th century and was rebuilt in the 15th century.

I didn’t climb it because I need to move forward fast.

A regret!

I look down Placa street from the top of Pila Gate.

A church and Franciscan monastery lined up on the left side from the near side.

There is a bell tower of Luža Square at the end of the street.

I look down the right side of Placa street from the top of Pila Gate.

The dome structure of the lower right is the upper part of Big Onofrio’s fountain.





About the rampart

It is the about 8th century when this old town was born that this rampart surrounding it was built.

After that, it was expanded and became its current form in the about 16th century.

The max height is 25 m, the width of the sea side is 1.5 – 3 m, and it of the mountain side is 4 – 6 m.

Walking on the promenade of the rampart takes one hour by making a circuit.

The entrances are four, and four fortresses are established at four corners.

At the entrance of the Lovrijenac fortress (viewpoint E, G) on the western outside, the following message had been carved on the castle wall.

” It isn’t in the right that we sell our freedom for even every gold “

Here is the spirit of a seafaring country that traded over the world of the Middle Ages.















My dream was to look at a city of seafaring country that thrust in the sea.

This city was an independent nation once, and was a perfect city that had left a feature of the Middle Ages.

How could such small country continue with the independent nation between large countries for approximately seven centuries?

Phoenicia and Miletos must have been similar, too.

This history romance tempts me into next meditation.


This continues next time.
