About Pile Gate
With St Blaise, Dubrovnik’s patron saint looking out from its imposing stonework, Pile Gate is the grandest entrance in the city walls. Built in 1537, Pile Gate with its drawbridge and inner and outer sections, is the western entrance to the city and a good starting point for exploring the medieval walls.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours!
