If you take a walk from St. Stephen’s square in the town of Hvar to the north, you will pass through the main city gate that will take you through the old core of the town of Hvar and then to the Hvar fortress Fortica or, as the locals call it, “Španjola”. It was built at the beginning of the 16th century during the Venetian rule and renewed in 1579. Today, the fortress houses a collection of amphorae and other items from antiquity and the Middle Ages. In addition to experiencing the original architecture, you will also enjoy an unforgettable panoramic view of the town of Hvar, its surroundings and the Paklinski islands.
