Long Description:

One of two preserved town's gates, the Dacice Gate (Dacická brána), is originally Gothic tower substantially rebuilded in Renaissance style during 16th century.

Two originally Gothic town gates have been preserved up till this day. Both were reconstructed in the Renaissance style in the middle of the 16th century. The eastern one is called Horní or Jemnická Brána and it stands in the Horní square in the direction of the towns Znojmo and Jemnice. The northern one is the depicted Dacice Gate also called "Lower / Dolní". It is situated near the Dolní Square in the direction of the town Dacice. The gate with shingle roof has tiered gables and it is equipped by a Baroque turret. Gate has a beautiful Renaissance graffiti facade and the groove for portcullis. Before the gate is a part of the former barbican which apparently originates from the 15th century. In the 19th century, the middle part of the barbican was demolished and its remains were converted into residential houses.
