Entrance to town from the Gurdic spring (very refreshing spring in hot days but also extremlly cold one), consists of 3 separate gates from different periods (13th, 16th and 18th century). Fortified system of southern gate includes the Gurdic bastion, and the chain bridge over the spring which could be lifted. Gurdic bastion was built in 15th century, near the Gurdic well and the southern gate. It was expanded and strenghtened many times.
