Because of its large number of small bridges, Vrboska is often referred to as ‘Little Venice’. But it is not only the bridges that make this small town located in a deep wooded cove in the northern part of the island of Hvar particularly significant. The church-fortress of St. Mary of Mercy, probably erected in 1575 and fortified by 1579, is particularly impressive. This is one of the most striking examples of a building in the Adriatic that combines elements of both sacral and fortification architecture.
