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 !

Easily missed as it now seems to be entrnce to Italian cultural centre and it's not until you look up that you realsie it is the arch you have been trudging up and down the street in search of for ages.
