Create an itinerary including Zadar Land City Gates
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.

  • The land gate is the most ornate and prettiest of the gates in Zadar. The Venetian winged lion on the gate is really impressive. It's next to a small arena. For really good pictures/views of the gate enter the city through the gates, take a left and you'll see a park. Climb the steps to get really good views.
  • The most elaborate of the city gates also has the prettiest setting, facing a sheltered little marina. Dating from 1543, it has Renaissance-style decorations including St Chrysogonus (Zadar's patron saint) on horseback and the Venetian winged lion. The gate is still used by traffic and was clearly meant to impress those entering – the reverse side is decidedly plain. To get a really good view go up the stairs on the side and walk up into the park. Great place to take photos.
