Piran Town Walls, Piran

4.7
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Piran
Put one euro in the locked gate to access the stairs and climb to the top of Piran Town Walls, offering views of the city and the sea. The three walls were built during the town's long history, and large parts remain well-preserved today. See the ruins of the first wall from the 7th century in the old part of the town. The third wall with its seven towers built between 1470 and 1533 is almost completely intact. As you explore the walls, look for the oldest of the eight city entrances or "gates," which dates back to the 13th century. Among other gates, pay attention to the city's best-preserved Gothic doors, constructed in 1483 by mayor Dolfin. To visit Piran Town Walls and other attractions in Piran, use our Piran trip planner.

  • A beautiful town on the Slovene coast is like a little Venice-narrow streets. I recommend you see this town on the occasion of his stay in Slovenia a lot of restaurants, cafes that serve very good ice cream.

  • The best view of the old town of Piran is the belfry of the Cathedral is the right place rather than Julia. There are a total of four in the top of the wall, close to the entrance in order to climb to the top for the third most helpful when you are viewing. (Tartini Square looks best)

  • Nicer this panorama than the Cathedral. More beautiful because you are higher and you can see more. To get to the walls from Tartini Square take the steep Ulica Korpusa (which begins at the corner of the Venetian House). Entrance 2 euro.

  • It's a great place to view central Piran, only 2 Euro to enter, but watch your head on those staircases, the people that built it must've been short :)
  • The 15 century town walls protected this then Venetian town. A number of "Second" gates permitted access to the town but inner defences and "First" gates protected the town core and the harbour.
  • It's a steep climb to get there, and you'll have to pay €1 to get on the wall, but it is definitely worth it. Beautiful view overlooking the sea and Piran
  • If you go to piran, you must climb this walls. Very beautiful point of view of the city.
  • Costs 2 Euros but the view is well worth it.
