Walking the walls is a great way to see the layout of the town with its four monastries and find new perspectives over the tiled roofs of the city and the sea. The entrance to the city walls are situated at the both ends of Stradun, near the Pile Gate and beneath the City Bell Tower. The walls are most imposing and well preserved, having a circumference of just over a mile aan are up to 18 feet thick.

Revelin Fortress  
 

Description:
Revelin Fortress (16th century)
Revelin is a large fortress, an irregular square in a form, built outside the city walls in the eastern part of the city, into the Plo?e Gata. It was built in the middle of the 16th century, at the time of the newly-risen Venetian danger threatening the Dubrovnik Republic. The building itself went on rapidly, all other public building-enterprises and most of the private ones were stopped in order to make the unhindered building of the fortress as quick as possible.

The construction was made after the design of the architect Anton Ferramollino, who was sent to Dubrovnik as a help by the Spanish admiral Doria, a great friend of the Republic. The monumental and impressive building, encompassed by the sea on one side and surrounded by a moat on the other three sides, was a dignified and impregnable guard of the Dubrovnik harbour. One of its corners entered the eastern city gate - Ploce, accomplishing a unique defense complex together with the gate, thus guarding the eastern approach to the city from the continental side.

St. John's Fortress (Sveti Ivan)
 

Description:
St. John's Fortress (16th century) was meant to be the main defense of the city harbour and one of the most important defense fortifications of the city. The first tower of the fort was built in this place in the first halh of the 14th century, and it is still one of the parts of the fortress. In the following few decades the fortress has been reinforced, parts have been addes to it, it has also been partly re-built, until it got its present semi-circular form in the 16th century and so became an impressively looking complex of buildings. Inside the ancient buildings we find the Maritime Museum and the Aquarium
