Photographer's Note

The Opatowsk Gate is a Gothic gate to the town founded in the 14th century
by the King Casimir the Great. The original system of the Gothic walls consisted of four gates leading to: Opatow (the only preserved), Zawichost, Lublin and Cracow and two wicket gates (of which one – the Dominican wicket gate, called “the Needle Eye” - has been preserved) as well as twenty-one defensive towers. On the northern facade of the gate there is an original guide bar which was used for lowering the portcullis. The Opatowska Gate is crowned with a Renaissance attic. There is a scenic terrace on the top.
