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.

Walls of Piran reviews
After being a bit overwhelmed by the crowds of tourists in Piran and feeling disappointed by the lack of good beach and Jellyfish in the water, we were very pleasantly surprised to get to the walls... more »
Monumental town walls let you make great panoramatic photos of Piran. You can see all parts of Piran from above. more »
The view if you climb to the very top is impeccable.
Town with a lot of medieval architecture, narrow streets and compact houses. Heavily influenced by the Venetian Republic and Austria-Hungary, the monuments differ greatly from those in inner parts of Slovenia. Worth the trip.
