A protected cultural monument and part of the medieval castle built in the 18th century, separate structures incorporated into the system of city walls. Only some parts have been preserved, among which the lower part of the entrance tower was subsequently converted into a gunpowder warehouse.
Today, it is conceived as a visitor center and a starting point for getting to know and touring the fortification system in Zadar. Architectural interventions have affirmed all the preserved historical layers of the Small Arsenal, which are integrated into a unique whole that, along with its visual attractiveness, exudes modernity.
Arsenal continuously organizes art and other exhibitions, as well as various cultural events, concerts, book presentations, themed evenings, video projections and similar events
