It dates from the mid-2nd century CE, replacing an earlier gate. Close by are a few remains of the old city wall. It has two arched entrances flanked by engaged columns on the outer façade, a plain architrave and an ornate frieze.

    Description:

    From 998 Hungary, Croatia and Venice competed for possession of Split, which in 1420 placed itself under Venetian protection. In 1797 it passed with the rest of Dalmatia to Austria, who held it until the end of World War I. The building dates from the Venetian period and served as the town hall in the 19th century. The upper floors were redone in a Neo-Gothic style in 1890.
