The tower of the Minčeta Fortress has dominated Dubrovnik for centuries and has a fascinating architectural structure. The original building was smaller and square, and was built by Nicifor Ranjina in 1319. It was adapted and received its current monumental circular form from the famed Renaissance architect Michelozzo Michelozzi of Florence and one of the greatest Croatian Renaissance masters Juraj Dalmatinac. The project was completed in 1464. The top of this structure provides a stunning view of the town and all its surroundings.
