    Old Town

    by William1982 Updated Aug 18, 2004

    The city walls give a great view of the old city and surround. The walls protected the city from attack from the 13th Century onwards. Within these walls are the most important sights in Dubrovnik, including the usual churches and cathedrals, and some worthwhile museums.

    Take a picture above the Old Town

    by Venturingnow Written Feb 25, 2003

    There's a great stop along the city wall walk to take your picture standing over the Old Town. From here you can definately notice all of the new and old roof tiles that the city is famous for. The old, fire-red/orange tiles were mostly damaged when the city had tons of bombs dropped on it about a decade ago. Now you can see all of the patch work that was done to fix the tiles, but the colors aren't the same anymore because of this reason. The old tiles were made by hand, molded into shaped by pressing the tile over a worker's knee. The new tiles needed to be in place in such a rush that machines had to be used, and the metal discolored the tile. That's what some guy told me. Sounds pretty credible.

    Churches in the Old Town

    by Venturingnow Written Feb 25, 2003

    There are three main churches in the Old Town, all of them were closed when I was in town, but I took a picture of this smaller one while exiting the city walls. It's really nice to see the city's simple architecture on a church.

    Another view of the city from the walls. The hill that overlooks the town used to have a cable car run. You can just make out the blue stantion from the old cable car operation.

    The Jesuit church.
    It was built to the project of the
    Italian architect Andrea Pozzo
    at the end of the 17th and the
    beginning of the 18th century.
    This Church is a graceful figure.

    Somewhere on the southeast side of the city is where we saw this statue. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of it or the plaza in which it was located.

    The old town is absolutely fascinating, but please remember your sun glasses as the white from the stones reflect heavily in the square.

    the Old Town fortress wall...

    by marktynernyc Written Oct 8, 2002

    Walk the fortress wall late in the afternoon as the sun is beginning to set. Looking out over the clay tiled roofs to the Adriatic is incredible.
