Discover why this castle has delighted its visitors for centuries. The most notable cultural and historical monument in Benkovac is Kashtel Benkovich, a fortress named after the large Croatian Benkovich family who built it in the second half of the 15th century. However, there are some other theories about its origin. Some say it was built by Croatian masters in the Middle Ages. Initially, this mysterious castle played a defensive role. However, the Turks conquered it in 1527. Proof of the importance of this building for this area is the fact that marks the beginning of the history of the town of Benkovac. The castle is equally important today, although it has a different function - it serves as an ideal stage for various events and is the center of cultural life.
