Pile Gate, {CATEGORY}

The gate on the western end of the Old City was built on the site of the former Pile fortress and it is Old Town's busiest port of entry, largely because buses from the city and ferry terminals deposit their passengers there. A stone bridge leads to the outer gate, which is decorated by a statue of St. Blaise, the city's patron saint. The outer Pile Gate was guarded from 1537 on, so the city could monitor trade in and out of the city. The wooden drawbridge leading to it was pulled up at night in an elaborate ceremony. During summer, honorary guards in period costume stand guard mornings as tourists shuffle in for a day of sightseeing. However, the moat was drained long ago and is now just a green space. The interior gate was built in the 15th century and it, too, has its statue of St. Blaise - this one done by the prolific 20th-century Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic.
