Lovrijenac Castle, also known as Fort Lovirjenac, is located outside of Dubrovnik's city walls. This fort now serves as a theater. Shakespeare plays are performed here during the summer.

Fort Lovrijenac maintains an important place in legend. It is said that this fort was built to prevent Venetians from building a fort on the same location in the 11th century.
