City Sentinel, Zadar

(65+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Plan to meet at City Sentinel, a clock tower and recognized landmark in Zadar's lively main square. Croatia and Italy share a lot of the same visual culture, as evidenced by this Renaissance-style structure designed by a Venetian architect. The surrounding stone barrier was built after the clock tower itself and once held canons to protect the heart of the city. While the fortification was a part of the national museum in the past, it now serves as a favorite meeting place for visitors and locals. Use our Zadar tourist route planner to add City Sentinel and other attractions to your Zadar vacation plans.
