There are two worthwhile gates to look out for as you make your way around the old city walls, which are called the Sea Gate and Land Gate. Both have their interesting features, but the more impressive is definitely Land Gate, which was built in 1543 and has the Venetian symbol of a large lion on its frame. When it was built it was regarded as the main gateway into the city, although these days you're more likely to pass through a smaller gate that leads from the bridge.

De la ciudad fortificada medieval de Zadar aún quedan algunas cosas que han sobrevivido al paso del tiempo y a los bombardeos que sacudieron la ciudad durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Entre ellas, destacan las murallas de la ciudad y las dos puertas de acceso, llamadas del Mar y la de la Tierra.

Para poder ver un poco de la muralla y de la puerta de la Tierra, que es la que mejor se conserva de las dos, lo mejor es ir al parque de los cinco aljibes que tiene un pequeño mirador. Conviene ir tanto de día como de noche. De día, se verán mejor los detalles (como el León veneciano) y de noche, la iluminación está muy buena.

Playa de Gandia

Zadar guarda aún restos de murallas y de dos puertas de entrada a la antigua ciudad fortificada. Hecha por los venecianos durante el siglo XVI, sin dudas la que mas destaca y mejor se conserva es la puerta de la Tierra. Está puerta es un lujo es su decoración, destacando la figura del león de San Marcos, un símbolo de lo que fuera la República de Venecia. Vale la pena darse una vuelta por el lugar tanto de día como de noche, para verla iluminada.
