Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing place
Friendly people, you don't always find a free parking space straight away, but eventually you do. Parking fee is not really cheap, but as you have a lot to see, it is worth it.

The lion on the gate holds an open book which means that the city of Zadar had to pay taxes to the Serenissima (Venice).

Nice place for taking pictures.

When I was posting my reviews, I noticed that there is some confusion between the Land Gate and the Sea Gate. The Land Gate is the large gate located near the Five Wells Square, the one with the snarling lion. While this gate, the Sea gate is located on the other side of Old Town, between the ferry port and the market (Porta Marina), it is also known as Porta di San Grisogono.

It was built in honor of the victory of the Christian army over the Turks at Lepanto. There are fragments of a Roman triumphal arch walled up inside the door. Above the arch and the Roman frame, there is a large Renaissance table with the chronology of the battle of Lepanto.

The Gate is shaped with built-in components of a Roman triumphal arch that Melia Aniana, a former Roman citizen from Zadar, erected in the memory of her husband.

As an aside, we really enjoyed our time here, Zadar is one of Dalmatia’s larger cities, but it did not feel that way and has lots of interesting architecture. First settled by the Illyrians, the Romans, then Venetians, heavily bombed during WWII and held under siege during the Homeland War. We only spent two nights in Zadar – in hindsight, we could have used another day.

It is, for sure, an interesting point of interest. Coming from the beach, The Gate offer you a spectacular entrance to the Old City of Zadar.
Is like suddenly you are invited to pass through some kind of time gate.
We loved it.

When staying in Zadar recently, we walked through the Sea Gate every day at some point walking into the Old Town.

Its beautiful, and there is a board with a little history of the gate and surrounding city walls just next to the small harbour to the left. Have a read!

Small gate in the city walls that leads logically enough from the sea into the heart of the Old Town.
