Church of the Fortress of St. Mary of Mercy


This is an amazing historical fortress which is also a church. The Church of St. Mary of Mercy is not the only historical church on the island of Hvar, but it is definitely one of the most impressive. What makes it so special is that it is a real fortress. Marija od Milosti is very unique in its design, which is a real rarity among European fortress churches.This church is the most beautiful and most impressive architectural area in Vrboska.During the tourist season the Church of St. Mary of Mercy is open from 10 to 12 and from 18 to 19 hours , but in the preseason you should announce a visit to the parish office.

Fortified church which is quiet and peaceful for not only praying but also reading books and enjoying the quietness of the place. The church is in the fortress and it spiced up our tour to the place and we really enjoyed the travel to the place. The building of the church has ana ancient touv=ch that gives its uniques touch and makes it attractive for many people. We toured around the place and climbed the tower and the moment was unforgettable. The view from the tower was phenomenal and worth the visit.
