Long are 1940 m, up to 25 m high, on a land of 4-6 m, and by sea 1.5-3 m. On four sides of the world are protected by the towers. When it started building walls in the 13th century, the space of the old town was already defined to no longer spread. Within the city walls, during the Dubrovnik Republic there were about 2000 inhabitants at the time of the Constitution in 1272, and most were in the 15th century, about 6000 people [1]. In the 14th century 15 square-tower buildings were built. With the onset of gunpowder, it is gradually increasing the protection of the artillery attacks. Because of the dangers of the Venetian, all unnecessary openings on the walls at the port are closed. City walls were given the present look in the 15th and 16th centuries. Wars affected the new construction. When Constantinople fell in 1453, the Minceta Tower was built. Because of the Turkish-Venetian wars, the towers of St. Ivan, Revelin and the Bastion of St. Margarete (in St. Margaret's). The walls were built at great speed because of the danger of war”
