LOVRIJENAC

To the west of the Old Town at the top of a 37-meter high cliff is located the Lovrjenac Fort, a symbol of survival and freedom of Dubrovnik, which has served the defense of the city and the western gate of Pile. Above the entrance there is the famous inscription: NON BENE PRO TOTO Libertas VENDITUR AURO (Freedom cannot be sold for all the richness of the world). The first official documents mention this fortress only in 1301 although it is assumed that its construction began earlier. Today Lovrjenac is known as a summer theater for the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, particularly for performing the works of William Shakespeare. It is interesting to note that among the famous actors who embodied the character of the Danish prince were Daniel Day Lewis and Goran Visnjic.
