The city is defended on the western side by the freestanding Fort Lovrijenac (12-13th centuries), and on the eastern side by Revelin (built according to the plan of the Spanish Antonio Ferramolino in 1538). The walls as they appear today were built, rebuilt and partitioned from the 14th to the seventeenth centuries

Its current appearance is the result of the Baroque style renovation. Inside the church there is a tomb of a great poet, Ivan Gundulić.
