Ploče gate

Ploce Gate, sometimes called \" St. Luke\'s Gate\", after the neighbouring church, consists of two separate gates. The inside gate is comparatively small, two metres wide. It was constructed in the Romanesque style with St. Blaise\'s head chiselled in on its archkey stone. The Asimov Tower rises just above its entrance. Next to this gate there is another one, new, much bigger, built during the Austrian occupation at the end of the last century. The outside gate was build by Simeon della Cava in 1450 and widened at the end of the 19th century. In front of it is a single-spanned stone bridge constructed in 1449 according to the one standing in front of the Pile Gate. By crossing it one reaches the Revelin Fort.
