Pile Gate information
The natural starting point to any visit to Dubrovnik, this fabulous city gate was built in 1537. Crossing the drawbridge at the gate’s entrance, imagine that this was once actually lifted every evening, the gate closed and the key handed to the rector. Notice the statue of St Blaise, the city’s patron saint, set in a niche over the Renaissance arch.
As you pass through the outer gate you come to an inner gate dating from 1460, and soon after you’re struck by the gorgeous view of the main street, Placa, or as it’s commonly known, Stradun, Dubrovnik’s pedestrian promenade.
