  Zindan kapija
by viddra
 
 

Just ahead of Despotova kapija (Despot's gate), there's this so-called Zindan kapija (Prison gate) built between 1427 and 1456.
The gate consisted of 2 towers with cannons, and therefore was the most fortified entrance to the Fortress.
The cellars below served as an infamous dungeon ('zindan' means 'dungeon' in Turkish).
