Put one euro in the locked gate to access the stairs and climb to the top of Walls of Piran, offering views of the city and the sea. The three walls were built during the town's long history, and large parts remain well-preserved today. See the ruins of the first wall from the 7th century in the old part of the town. The third wall with its seven towers built between 1470 and 1533 is almost completely intact. As you explore the walls, look for the oldest of the eight city entrances or "gates," which dates back to the 13th century. Among other gates, pay attention to the city's best-preserved Gothic doors, constructed in 1483 by mayor Dolfin. To visit Walls of Piran and other attractions in Piran, use our Piran trip planner.

Quite cheap entrance (€3), and gives you a very nice view over Piran and it's surroundings. Multiple towers along the wall.

Nice view of Piran and the bay. It’s good to walk and a quite brief moment. 3€ entrance fee (adults on 21.09.2022)
Good place for beautiful views of Piran. A little steep walk up to the walls and narrow steep staircase up to towers. But nothing that a relatively fit person cannot do.
