Town walls are about some miles long and they include sixteen larger and smaller beautiful towers, among them the awesome tower of Sveti Ivan, the largest one, built at the very entrance to the harbour Porporela. The walls are about 25 meters high and up to 3m thick at the sea side of the town, while at the mainland, they are thick up to 6 meters.
