The system of the fortification Porec

The system of the fortification walls that you can see dates from antiquity, than 12th and 16th century. They'd construct new walls on the remaine of the previous. The town didn't spread outside the antique walls for a long time, so they are still present, although houses were constructed on them in more recent times.

Mayor Warnerio de Gillago undertook restoration of the fortification towers and huge construction works in town in 13th century, yet the best preserved is eastern part of the walls with three towers built under the threat of Turkish invasion at the end of the 15th century, when Porec was part of the Venetian Republic.
