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.

  • Amazing architecture and views of Piran from the top of the towers. Must visit! Entrance fee is very cheap at EUR2 per person, but you DO need to mind your head when climbing the tower stairs! :)

  • The best view of the beautiful town both during the day and at sunset. The staff is very friendly. Getting there requires a bit of walking but not as bad as you might think when looking at the walls.....  more
