The Gate Sabbionara is located on the northeastern part of the Venetian fortifications and is the only surviving structure. During Ottoman rule, it suffered major changes regarding its external appearance. The same name was given at the bastion that was built on the north, in front of which survives a circular emblem with the Lion of St. Mark and Venetian coat of arms.
