Fort Revelin, Dubrovnik: 3 reviews and 5 photos


Just beside the Ploce Gate is another example of Dubrovnik?s powerful fortifications. Along with Fort St. John on the southern side of the harbour, Fort Revelin, located in the north eastern corner of the Old Town, protected the Old Port of Dubrovnik from invaders and also stood watchfully over the Ploce Gate, guarding the town from seaward and overland invaders. The gate was built between 1500 and 1538 during one of the most productive periods of construction for Dubrovnik?s Old Town Walls, at a time when the threat of the expanding Ottoman Empire was an ever present fear.
