"Tiled roofs" Top 5 Page for this destination City walls Tip by JLBG

City walls, Dubrovnik: 110 reviews and 218 photos


Most of the roofs have kept their ''Roman tiles'' (sometimes called ''half-boot''), very heavy and not very waterproof. But even those, which have been covered with modern mechanical tiles, keep a beautiful look because the color is the same.

Very narrow streets allow protecting from the heat in summer, from the wind in winter.

Address: Gradske Zidine, Op?ina Dubrovnik,20000. Croatia
