Fortress Fortica


This beautiful fortress dating from the 16th century offers a beautiful panoramic view of the entire island of Hvar and the Paklinski islands which you will enjoy. Not only is it one of the nicer places to visit but also coming to it is a great experience. If you head north from the main square you will pass through the main city gate Porta di Datallo you will come across stairs that, surrounded by aromas of Mediterranean herbs, lead all the way to the top of Fortica - or as the locals call it, Shpanjole.

Interesting history of the Fortress and we loved the tour around and the stunning views of the landscape from the walls of the fortress.
very good!!!
Fortess fortica is so wonderful. It was built on a raised landscape. I treassure and fancy this place very much.
The unique trees surrounding the fortress are worthwhile. It has improved the nature and beauty of the place.Magical.
Great views of the old town and we had an walk and some exercises on the stairs up and down with nice cafe at the top that we enjoyed a drink from. We had some amazing pictures taken of the place too.
It gives a great view of the ocean and islands on it, and also the town below. Well lit town view in the night. The cafe was amazing. I will definitely be back in the summer
The historical artefacts in this place was thriiling. I was fascinated by their historic collection
