Just renovated & looking super. BALBI GATE leads to Grisia St & up to St Euphemia's tower.
Aug 2019
The Venetian Gate that opens up to the cobbled Grisia street was built in 1679. It features a carved head of a Venetian on one side, & opposite that of a Turk.
The marble gate has most recently been cleaned & renovated - between May 2018 & 2019 - when it was shrouded in a canvas screen.
Balbi Gate is somewhat off to the side off Main Square & whilst not in a prominent position , it stands where the original town gates were located.

The Balbi Arch leads to the old town and is the gateway through the narrow cobbled streets. Built in 1679 it is an excellent piece of architecture with beautiful carvings.

It is a lovely small arch in the old town, hiding a bit from the main square but this is where you enter the peninsula area.

This arch is hard to miss if you're in town for any length of time, but I found nothing all that special about it and certainly don't recommend that you make it the focal point of your visit to the old town.

Ancient Venetian arch, recently renovated.
May 2019 • Couples
This ancient Venetian arch (note the ubiquitous Lion) is at the heart of old town. City Hall and other municipal offices are just to the left. This is a great place to start a tour of the artisan area of the city. Recently renovated in Spring 2019.

This is a lovely marble arch that leads to a brilliantly cheap bar called brunos bar and is fab for sports fans as they have a huge tv with sport on.

This is under construction!

Nothing here unless you count the shroud covering the arch and the work crew rehabbing it. Sorry for the bad need.

Arch is currently under renovation, and it is not possible to see how it really look. It stands under the entrance into old town.

this Arch was under renovation during our visit.

this Arch is centrally located in downtown's main Rovinj square, this square goes back to the 17th century and is very spacious. You find lots of Tourists there as well, and if you are in luck like we were, a childen choir will perform songs for you.There are also many restaurants located here as well as sightseeing boats.

We were looking forward to seeing this ancient gate, but unfortunately, at this time, all we could see was the covering that the town has put over it as it is being repaired. If one is currently (2018) in seeing ancient gates, you will have to await completion of the restoration.
