The Twin Gates of Motovun are a well-preserved example of medieval city walls. They are double because the city walls form two defensive belts on the west side. The exterior gate has a lapidary with ancient and medieval inscriptions and reliefs, and the interior gate is interesting because of its early Gothic stylistic features.

As an architecture lover, i was fascinated by the Gothic stylistic features of the city. I saw the most preserved gates in Croatia here. The gates acted as symbol of strength and security in the old ages. I was delighted to learn the history behind the twin gates from the chatty guides who left no information out.. A wonderful place to be.

I had a vacation to the beaches at Twin Gates of Motonuv. The beaches are good and clean, but what makes it more satisfying is the service of the tourist guides who were very helpful and friendly.

Built towards the end of the 2nd century, the double Roman gates, are quite historical. It is one of the 10 gates within the city walls. These gates just stand out. It offers a nice place for taking photos. The gates are in perfect condition. The gates now lead to a museum and Castle.
