Barbacan (Barbican) Gate

Old Town, Warsaw, Poland

Barbican, a fortified gateway between New Town and Old Town, was built in 1548 in a place of an older gate to protect Nowomiejska Street and designed by Jan Baptist the Venetian (Italian Renaissance architect living in Poland). The barbican had the form of a 3-level semicircular bastion manned by fusiliers, 14 meters wide and 15 meters high, and extended 30 meters from the external walls. The most part of the Warsaw Old Town Wall has survived since the time it was built in the 14th century.
