    The (mandatory) walk on the walls of Dubrovnik has two different sides: the ocean side and the land side.

A whole town has grown inside it, with some original remains, as the peristyle and Jupiter's temple, side by side with posterior constructions, some classified, as the cathedral built upon Diocletian's mausoleum.
