Ploče Gate

Ploče GateThe main entrance to Old Town from the Eastern side, Ploče Gate (also known as Vrata od Ploča) were built at the end of 14th century. The gate consist of inner and outer section and incorporates a stone bridge. The bridge used to be just wooden drawbridge which used to be pulled up at night to prevent unwelcome guests entering the town but was later replaced by stoned one so nowadays the beautiful bridge with stone balustrade (above photo) leads through the Gate to Luza Square and Stradun.

Above the entrance of the Gate there is a statue of Sveti Vlaho, the patron saint of DubrovnikThe Revelin Fortress is built into the outer section of the Gate as a handy lookout point for towns eastern approach.
