The city of Kastav, located on a rocky hill above the sea, contains several important city squares in its structure, which as gathering places represent extremely important public spaces, each of which was formed in a specific way. The walls of Kastav are one of the most fully preserved complexes of city walls from the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 16th century and a valuable monument of Croatian fortification architecture. The system of walls was built as a "fortress within a fortress", the outer part of which forms a defensive wall around the entire settlement, and the inner part around the parish church. The walls, whose circumference is about 750 m, enclose an irregularly shaped surface, measuring about 27,000 m². Six of the former seven towers in the outer rampart and three towers that define the plateau with the church of St. Helena Križarica.
