Omiš - Fortica Fortress

Published in Culture and sights

The Fortica fortress is situated on top of Omiš Dinara and from its tower there is a view over the whole town, the river Cetina canyon, the islands of Brač, Hvar and Šolta and the central part of Poljice. It once provided the Omiš pirates with a great panoramic view, helping them to monitor the sea at large and the land area too. The fortress' primary purpose was to defend town, but should the enemy have conquested the town centre, the defenders were then ready to launch a shower of large stones onto the town from the top of the mountain. The fortress can be reached by following the pathway for about 20 minutes on foot.
