Sight 1: Fort Lovrijenac

Show sight on map
Fort Lovrijenac

Fort Lovrijenac or St. Lawrence Fortress, Italian Fortezza di San Lorenzo, often called "Dubrovnik's Gibraltar", is a fortress and theater outside the western wall of the city of Dubrovnik in Croatia, 37 metres (121 ft) above sea level. Famous for its plays and importance in resisting Venetian rule, it overshadows the two entrances to the city, from the sea, and by land. Early in the 11th century, the Venetians attempted to build a fort on the same spot where Fort Lovrijenac currently stands. If they had succeeded, they would have kept Dubrovnik under their power, but the people of the city beat them to it. The "Chronicles of Ragusa" reveal how the fort was built within just three months and from then on constantly reconstructed. When the Venetian ships arrived, full of materials for the construction of the fort, they were told to return to Venice. The Croatian leg of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series takes place in Lovrijenac.

Amerling's fountain at Pile is a fountain in front of the entrance to the old town of Dubrovnik in the Pile area. In 1900, the fountain was made by the Croatian sculptor Ivan Rendić. At the top are fountains Stojna and satir: characters from Gundulić's mythological-pastoral drama Dubravka. The fountain was donated to his hometown in his own name and on behalf of his brothers by Ignatius Amerling. In 2023, the fountain was thoroughly restored. It is often the starting point of sightseeing of Dubrovnik's historic city center. Before moving to Pile, it was located at the entrance to gradac park.
