Zadar Land City Gates, Zadar

#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Zadar
Ruin · Hidden Gem · Landmark
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 City Gate which dates from 1543 is in a pleasant position next to a harbour. Logically is also next to the City Walls, and leads into the Old Town.  more »
  • A nice view to take photos or videos. A lot of cruse boats and ships along the area. Great location if you want to book a trips or grab a taxi.  more »
  • 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.
  • Great looking monument of the past with a lot of details, with still ongoing one-way traffic out of the city. However not greatly in the center of attention so it doesen't bring out the importance it needs.
