Almost unbelievable how something so iconic and historic has been built around so that you basically stumble across it whilst meandering in the streets - old and new converging together in a random fashion.It appears to be within a merchandising area so I think a...More

Easy to find and not miss. Another gateway in to Pula. Once again impressed by these robust structures still standing and in very good condition. Remember to photograph it !

impressive gateway to the old town Pula is a fascinating place to visit for the day and see so many Roman historic architecture. Well worth a visit and not so crowded in September.

Another of the Roman relics still in relatively good condition in Pula. Again easily found as you wander around.

The gate and the history behind it is quite impressive, and it is one part of the Pula historic sites that should not be missed. It was a part of a recent walking tour we did on a cruise excursion from the port of Koper....More
