Trip Planner: Europe / Croatia / Dalmatia / Dubrovnik-Neretva County / Korcula Island / Korcula Town / Revelin Tower
Guarding the entrance to the old town since the 14th century, Revelin Tower is also known as "Tower of the South Land Gate." As you approach the entrance via the wide stone steps built in the 18th century in the place of a wooden drawbridge, notice the two symbols of Korcula's history above the gate. A bas-relief depicting the winged lion of St. Mark symbolizes the Venetian reign, while the stone tablet marks the 10th centenary of the coronation of king Tomislav, the first Croatian ruler. For panoramic views of the old town, climb a large staircase that leads to the top of the tower.
