From Lovrijenac fort you can have the best view of the walls of Dubrovnik and Pile gate. It is a quick walk out of the city to get there, and you have to climb some stairs. If you do the walking of the walls, try to visit the fort on the same day since the ticket gives access to it.

Allow 30-45 minutes for this one. It is quite empty inside so mainly views on the walled city is the main attraction (definitely worth the climb).

We climbed up 3 hours before sunset to when the sun's rays were making the old town all the more picturesque.

Very well preserved ancient fort. Moderate climbing up the hill. Used for many bloody fighting and Cersei/Little Fingers scenes in the Red Keep of Game of Thrones

We went up the fort because it was included in the ticket for the walled-city. After much climbing (the stairs)...we reached the top and the view from there was awesome! We could see the clear water below. Worth going.

Fortress outside walled old town Dubrovnik used in Game of Thrones as the Red Keep. The setting is beautiful with great views of the city. Worth the walk up the hill.

Great views of Old Town! Interesting objects inside, nice staff too! Don't forget, free entry if you purchase a City Walls walk. This site did close at 3pm when we went though, so be sure to check the hours of operation before going! :) Don't miss this unique view! Once you reach the top, you can always make a game... More

Lovrijenac Fortress, or St. Lawrence Fortress, is just outside the city walls of Dubrovnik. We visited after walking the walls. Admission to the walls also covers the fortress on the same day, so try to visit both. The fortress has an interesting history. In the 11th century, the Venetians tried to build a fort at this location. To prevent their... More

Huge fortress to explore! Loved the views from the top especiall around the Aegean Sea and back over to walls surrounding Dubrovnik Stari Grad. The ground floors are impressive too and even the views walking up to the fortress from outside, overlooking Dubrovnik.

We realized most people give this fort a miss but it should be a must do if visiting the city. Especially if you've bought the ticket for the city walls as the ticket covers this fort too. You'll get spectacular views of the old town and surrounding neighborhood from the top. Lots of stairs as with everywhere else in Dubrovnik... More
