Tureta Fortress


Fortress Tureta is a late antique square fortress on the island of Kornati. It is positioned on a hill, so navigation through the entire Kornati Channel could be monitored from it. It is the only preserved fortress from that time in the entire Adriatic, probably because it is outside the settlement, so the material was not used for the construction of other buildings over the centuries. Today it is in a state of neglect. Below it is the church of St. Mary, built probably at the same time as the fort.

We had the best time of our lives as we enjoyed swimming downhill at the waters. It was an amazing experience and we had a lot of fun at the fortress. We would love to visit the place more and we just love the place.
very good!!!
Dazzling views of the landscape that we enjoyed and witnessed. The ruins were spectacular and we had an amazing time on our trip to the place. I would recommend a visit to the place for anybody, have a good gear for the tour.
This fortress is in ruins but one could still picture its architectural design. It lies on an island. The view from the top was magical. Perfect place for a photo
Visiting Tureta fortress was the best moment of my life. The beauty, design and structure of the place is worthwhile.
A tour around the fort enabled me to learn how military personnel used this location as a hiding point. I got to experience millitary life through this tour.
We went hiking when we were at the Tureta Fortress and the experience is unmatched. The rock climbing uphill was spectacular and we had fun with my friends. I enjoyed the activity and the cool breeze on the trail.
