One of the finest examples of Venetian architecture in Dalmatia, Zadar Land City Gates features a triumphal arch that offers one passage for vehicles and two for pedestrians. Situated adjacent to the sea, this point has been a vital link between the city of Zadar and the outside area since 1543. The arch reflects Renaissance-style architecture and is adorned with a motif of St. Chrysogonus--the city's main patron saint--as well as a large monumental lion of St. Mark, and a Venetian coat of arms.

  • The city gate, built by the Venetian architect Michele Sanmicheli in 1543, is the center of the city gate, a statue of the lion, a symbol of the Republic of Venice.

  • Beautiful city walls and gates that resist the time for a couple of centuries and tell a story about ancient past...speachless
  • It's a bit scruffy around this side of Zadar with graffiti and funny smells but it's ok. The history is what interests me.
  • the old city is surrounded by a wall, built by the Romans and fortified in the 16th century, highlighting the door of St. Rok and the port (Port Gate) containing inscriptions of the battle of Lepanto in 1571. well worth walking the Boardwalk and some of its sections to admire this work.
