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: Opatów (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.
