It’s a nice structure but there’s not really that much to see. You could walk by it and miss it if your not careful!

Easy to find and not miss. Another gateway in to Pula. Once again impressed by these robust structures still standing and in very good condition. Remember to photograph it !

impressive gateway to the old town Pula is a fascinating place to visit for the day and see so many Roman historic architecture. Well worth a visit and not so crowded in September.

Sure, it looks old but, like the other roman remnants here, it's hard to believe it's that old. The gate is almost impossible to miss when you're entering (or exiting depending on which way you go) the old town.
