Ruin Landmark Must See
One of the finest examples of Venetian architecture in Dalmatia, Zadar Land City Gates features a triumphal arch that offers one passage for vehicles and two for pedestrians. Situated adjacent to the sea, this point has been a vital link between the city of Zadar and the outside area since 1543. The arch reflects Renaissance-style architecture and is adorned with a motif of St. Chrysogonus--the city's main patron saint--as well as a large monumental lion of St. Mark, and a Venetian coat of arms.

  • We walked to the land gate from inside the city and I really don't recommend that. Inside it's just a big wall of cement and not beautiful to look at. From the other side it's gorgeous, build with a lot of details and technique.
