This MOC represents place of one of the Zadar's landmarks, Coast gates - Porta terraferma, in a year 1537. before the work started. Old medieval and antic walls would be rebuild into new modern 16th century fortifications.
About this creation
At the beginning of 16th century Zadar was last and most important stronghold at the borders of Venetian Republic and Ottoman Empire, so Venetians took great deal of efforts to build new fortification system around town. One of the product of that works would be Coastal gates - Porta terraferma - Kopnena vrata Zadar.
The gates would be built at this location in the next few years.

This has some really great detail. I really like the fishing pier and all the village people.

This is a very good idea. Showing it all like some kind of a reality show where old school builders build the famous wall. It looks very good as well. I like the old wooden shacks for workers!

Quoting swash buckler Impressive work- but i wonder what those yellow and orange bricks are doing in the wall since you certainly seem to have enough gray...
Yes, that was quite experimental. I've tried to show bad condition the walls are in. Those could be mould or something similar.
