The walls are complex fortifications that surround the old town of Dubrovnik.
They were built from the 13th to the 17th century for defense purposes, and are 1940 meters long and 25 meters tall. On side next to the land they are 4-6 meters thick, and on the sea side 1.5-3 meters. Walls have four sides, protected by towers.
When the enclosure by walls began in the 13th century, the area of the old town was already defined and could no longer spread. During the Dubrovnik Republic, within of its Walls lived about 2,000 inhabitants in 1272 and about 6,000 people in the 15th century. The Walls are protected by UNESCO.
