Twin gates and City Walls
Pula, as an ancient city, was surrounded by walls which were built in 1 st century BC. The city was entered through 12 gates of which 3 have been preserved. The walls still surround the old town, Kaštel hill, up to this day. One of the gates are the Twin Gates, which were named after the two semicircular openings leading to the old town, while the scratches on the arches are still visible from opening and closing the door. Interestingly enough, near the Twin Gates the remains of an octagonal mausoleum from the 2nd century were found. Passing through the door you can reach the Archaeological Museum, the Castle and the Small Roman Theater.
