This is a great spot for a picture of the walled part of the Old Town of Kotor. This length of the wall is bordered by the river and offers a very nice view. The walled Old Town of Kotor is beautiful!

This is close to the start of the challenging walk along the walls. Some of the paving is steep and very slippery when wet but the gate is worth a visit

The North gate was built in remembrance of the battle against Otoman empire attacks that occurred 1539; one year later the gate was built. From this point you can also see the shortest river in Montenegro, Škurda.
