Lovrijenac Fortress
Perched atop a 37m rock cliff to guard the land and sea entrances to the Old Town, the triangular fortress stands watch against Venice, Dubrovnik’s historic rival, and all other invaders. Climb the stairs to the gates where the motto of the Ragusan Republic is engraved above the main entry: "We do not sell our liberty for any gold in the world." The fort provides breathtaking panoramas of the Old Town and the surrounding sea, plus is a dramatic backdrop to performances during the Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
