This is worth a look if you pass, the gates are near the roman wall, and several other sites, but are nothing out of the ordinary. Part of the 'history trail' as you walk around.
It was pleasing to see that these gates were still in good condition and are free to see but for us the more interesting part was discovering that they form one of the entrances to a series of underground tunnels that run under the castle and were used as air raid shelters during the war.

The very grand twin gates (Porta Gemina) are double-arched. This is one of the remaining original ten gates. The gates were fortifications. Evidence of original (pre-2nd century) gates can be found here (we did not see them, unfortunately).

The double or twin gate is a unique sight within Pula as all the other ancient gates are single arch. You can easily see this sight in a few minutes on your walk around the old city walls. One of the entrances to the labyrinth of tunnels under old Pula is just behind the double gate.
