Great photo op on your way to Old Town circa the North Gate. There's a parking lot right next to it (just to the north), so it's easily accessible if you've got your own vehicle. Good first stop before checking out Old Town and walking up the fortress steps (highly recommended).

We walked by the wall and tower every day on our way to the old town. The tower is well designed, and the wall along it beautifully done.

One of the most prominent Bastions on the fortification Walls (13th to 14th century).
This historical fortification system protected the medieval town of Kotor and was inscribed in the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979.

Again a 'Walk by' attraction accessible from a stairway near the North Gate but certainly worthy of a photo.
This Bastion & fortifications date from 10th to 13th century after which the Venetians claimed Kotor/ Cattarro.
This low angled wall fortification is like the 'ground floor', with the wall stepping up the mountainside in impressive fashion.

Dating from the time Kotor was called Cattaro, one of the autonomous Dalmatian city states. Independence ended when Cattaro surrended to the Venetians in 1420. Living in the 1300s security in these areas was a major concern. So the Dalmations invested in these large defense works like the Kampana tower, or rather bastion as it not very high, rather bulky and oblique to make it more difficult to scale with ladders.

Very strategic location and thus very nice views from the top. Easy access from North gate. Illuminated after dark.

This is a Unesco world heritage site and you can see why. The walls and fortifications that protect Kotor date back to the 10th century. From the tower you can get a sense of the importance of the massive stone walls in defending Kotor against invaders

When walking on the outside of the city walls and the harbour, you certainly will pass the famous
“Kampana tower” who in reality is a massive stone fortress. It formed a defensive point where the north wall of the city meets the west wall fronting the harbor. It has been built in the 13th and 14th centuries when the city walls were upgraded. The angled stone skirt discouraged invaders from erecting scaling ladders. Kampama Tower is easy to access by a staircase who you will find near the north gate. Very interesting location. Worht to visit.

I came across this Tower while walking around the Old City. I was expecting a tall, big building for it to be called a tower.

Next to it are massive walls, parts of the fortifications of the city.

This is a big stone fortress with a moat of the river you will not miss it.The massive structure is beautiful. You can see it from a distance.
